The reversible effect of red and far-red light on the level of two RNA transcripts of the single-copy phytochrome gene in pea was investigated using the primer extension assay. In dark-grown seedlings, a brief irradiation with red light markedly reduced the level of one of the phytochrome transcripts, RNA1. This red light effect was reversed by subsequent irradiation with far-red light. The other phytochrome transcript, RNA2, was only slightly influenced by light. In light-grown seedlings, a… CONTINUE READING
