Abstract

This review describes the phytochrome system in higher plants and cyanobacteria and its role in regulation of photosynthetic processes and stress protection of the photosynthetic apparatus. A relationship between the content of the different phytochromes, the changes in the ratios of the physiologically active forms of phytochromes to their total pool and the resulting influence on photosynthetic processes is reviewed. The role of the phytochromes in the regulation of the expression of genes encoding key photosynthetic proteins, antioxidant enzymes and other components involved in stress signaling is elucidated.
