Abstract

The fungus Neurospora crassa has been shown to be a paradigm for photobiological, biochemical, and genetic studies of blue light perception and signal transduction. Several different developmental and morphological processes of Neurospora are regulated by blue light and can be divided into early and late blue light responses. The characterization of two central regulator proteins of blue light signal transduction in Neurospora crassa, WC1 and WC2, and the isolation of light-regulated genes, indicate transcriptional control as a central step in blue light signalling.
