    BLADE-ON-PETIOLE proteins act in an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex to regulate PHYTOCHROME INTERACTING FACTOR 4 abundance

    Bo Zhang et al.
    The abundance of the PIF4 transcription factor, central in light and temperature signaling, is controlled by an E3 ligase encoded by BOP proteins.

    PCH1 integrates circadian and light-signaling pathways to control photoperiod-responsive growth in Arabidopsis

    He Huang et al.
    A conserved, circadian-regulated protein alters light perception in plants to regulate daily growth in response to changing photoperiod.

    Shade-induced nuclear localization of PIF7 is regulated by phosphorylation and 14-3-3 proteins in Arabidopsis

    Xu Huang et al.
    A phosphorylation dependent translocation of PIF7 and involvement of 14-3-3 proteins reveal novel regulation mechanisms in shade signal transduction.

    Substantial near-infrared radiation-driven photosynthesis of chlorophyll f-containing cyanobacteria in a natural habitat

    Michael Kühl et al.
    Cyanobacteria with chlorophyll f show substantial near-infrared radiation-driven photosynthesis and can play an important role for primary production in endolithic, intertidal habitats.

    A florigen paralog is required for short-day vernalization in a pooid grass

    Daniel Woods et al.
    In Brachypodiumdistachyon, a single locus accounts for natural variation in whether perception of short day-lengths confers competence to flower.
