Control of nuclear import and phytochromes

F Nagy, E Schäfer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The past year has brought significant changes in our understanding of the molecular mechanism of photoreceptor-regulated gene expression in higher plants. The light-quantity- and light-quality-dependent nuclear import of phytochromes, followed by the conformation-dependent direct interaction of these phytochromes with transcription factors, seems to play a major role in light-modulated plant growth and development.
