Two independent light signals cooperate in the activation of the plastid psbD blue light-responsive promoter in Arabidopsis.

Abstract

The psbD blue light-responsive promoter (BLRP), whose activation has been considered to require strong blue light, is recognized only by SIG5 among six sigma factors of plastid RNA polymerase in Arabidopsis. We found SIG5 transcript accumulation was rapidly induced after a 30-min induction time by blue light (470 nm) with an intensity threshold of 5… (More)
