Keyword - Phytochrome signaling pathway (KW-0607)


Protein involved in the relay of information from the activated phytochrome molecule to target genes. Different phytochromes use both separate and common early signaling pathways. These pathways converge downstream in a process of signal integration that regulates photomorphogenesis and the circadian clock. This provides the means by which information from specific wavelengths of light may be amplified and coordinated.
