The transfer of Marchantia paleacea var. diptera cells to darkness caused a reversible repression in the accumulation of transcript for a gene, por, encoding the NADPH: protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase (EC 1.3.1.33). The photosynthetic inhibitor DCMU and DBMIB repressed the accumulation in light. In the presence of transcription inhibitor cordycepin, not… CONTINUE READING
