The single, ribbon-shaped chloroplast in the filamentous green algaMougeotia performs orientational movements with respect to light. The chain of reaction involves phytochrome as the photoreceptor pigment to perceive the light signal differentiated by wavelength and direction, calcium probably to convert the light signal into a chemical message and… CONTINUE READING
