PLANT BIOLOGY: Lighting Up the Nucleus

Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Many physiological processes in plants from flowering to seed germination are regulated by light. Plants have photoreceptors called phytochromes that detect changes in light and switch on the expression of light-regulated genes.
