Cryptochromes are proteins related to DNA photolyases and have been shown to function as blue-light photoreceptors and to play important roles in circadian rhythms in both plants and animals. The CPH1 gene from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii was originally predicted to encode a putative cryptochrome protein of 867 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 91 kD (Small et al., 1995). However, western blotting with antibodies specific to the CPH1 protein revealed the presence of two proteins that… CONTINUE READING
