Molecular cloning of Arabidopsis photolyase gene (PHR1) and characterization of its promoter region.


Photolyase is an enzyme that repairs ultraviolet (UV)-damaged DNA by photoreactivation. In higher plants, accumulation of photolyase (PHR1) mRNA is induced by either UV or visible light. In order to know the molecular mechanism by which PHR1 gene expression is induced by light, we have determined the genomic structure and the 5'-flanking sequence of the… (More)
