The action spectrum for chloroplast movements and evidence for blue-light-photoreceptor cycling in the alga Vaucheria

Abstract

Local stimulation of the coenocytic alga Vaucheria sessilis D.C. by blue light resulted in accumulation of chloroplasts and other organelles. The photoresponse followed a well-defined, wavelength-and fluence-rate-dependent latency period (≧10 s), and could lead to a tenfold decrease in relative cellular transmittance to 675-nm light within 5 min.
