Blue light responses in higher plants can be mediated not only by specific blue light receptors, but also by the red/far-red photoreversible phytochrome system. The question of interdependence between these photoreceptors has been debated over many years. The availability of Arabidopsis mutants for the blue light receptor CRY1 and for the two major phytochromes phyA and phyB allows a reinvestigation of this question. The analysis of photocontrol of seed germination, inhibition of hypocotyl… CONTINUE READING
