ABSTRACT
Blue light receptor phot1 and phot2 regulate hypocotyl phototropism induced by high intensity blue light (HBL) in functional redundancy. The phenotype of rpt2 single mutant is similar with double mutant phot1phot2 that lost phototropism, but rpt2phot1 double mutant shows normal phototropic response, which indicating that phot1 has dual opposite function with inducing and inhibiting hypocotyls phototropism. However, the mechanism of phot1-mediated inhibition remains to be elucidated. Here, we screened mutants with phototropism from EMS mutagenesis of rpt2 and cloned the gene P1SA1 (Phototropin1 Signaling Associated 1), which maybe locate downstream of phot1 and function in regulating phot1-mediated inhibitory response. The rpt2 p1sa1 mutant shows normal phototropism to unilateral HBL and overexpression of PHOT1 in rpt2 p1sa1 lost hypocotyl phototropism again, which indicated that P1SA1 may be the allelic of PHOT1. These results will open new perspectives about the screening and identification of genes involved in phot1-mediated inhibitory response, and provide theoretical basis for the self-regulation mechanism of plant to reduce high light damage.

    The apical hook is a developmentally regulated structure that appears in dicotyledonous seedlings when seeds germinate buried in the soil. It protects the shoot apical meristem and cotyledons from damage while the seedling is pushing upwards seeking for light, and it is formed by differential...

    As an ideal model for studying ethylene effects on cell elongation, Arabidopsis hypocotyl growth is widely used due to the unique characteristic that ethylene stimulates hypocotyl elongation in the light but inhibits it in the dark. Although the contrasting effect of ethylene on hypocotyl growth...

    As part of a continuing effort to elucidate mechanisms that regulate the magnitude of ethylene signalling, an Arabidopsis mutant with an enhanced ethylene response was identified. Subsequent characterization of this loss-of-function mutant revealed severe hypocotyl shortening in the presence of...
