Seedlings of Cuscuta japonica pasted on an acrylic plate developed many haustoria in response to far-red light after pre-irradiation with white light. The effect of far-red light was cancelled completely by red light irradiated immediately after the far-red light. In order to elucidate the photoreceptor(s) for photocontrol in the induction of haustoria, action spectra for the photo-induction and its reversion were determined in the wavelength region from 340 nm to 800 nm using the Okazaki Large… CONTINUE READING
