Fast induction of translatable mRNA by blue light in Neurospora crassa wt: the wc-1 and wc-2 mutants are blind.
Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology. B, Biology
After blue-light irradiation of Neurospora crassa (wt) mycelia we observed an increase of about 13 translatable mRNA species within a period of 30 min. The induction of translatable mRNA species followed a specific temporal pattern which permitted the identification of four distinct classes. One of the translatable mRNAs was induced in less than 2 min, while the others showed lag periods of 5, 10 or 20 min from the beginning of illumination. The white collar mutants, wc-1 and wc-2, which do not display any of the blue-light-induced physiological effects tested until now were found to be defective for the photoinduction of translatable mRNAs.
