Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences issue 7 is now available online

Issue 7 of Photochemical & Photochemical Sciences is a themed issue on ‘Blue-light photoreceptors’ and is now available to read online.

The front cover this month features work by Aba Losi and co-workers from Parma, Italy. Their article takes as its starting point the increasing evidence that prokaryotic organisms can sense and react to light stimuli via a variety of photosensory receptors and signal transduction pathways. The authors present a comprehensive scenario of the existence of bilin-GAF, LOV and BLUF proteins in the prokaryotic world, and inspect possible phylogenetic pathways. They also define novel criteria for identifying gene (and protein) sequences based on experimentally assessed photochemical events.

Read the article in full – it’s free to access for the next six weeks:
