    During a plant life, light is necessary not only as a source of energy, but also as a regulatory factor of plant metabolism with information signal function. In this review we consider basic links of primary stages of a light signal transduction in a plant cell. The transformation circuits and possible pathways of transfer of a light signal by major photoreceptors, phytochrome and cryptochrome, as well as possible roles of effectory proteins and secondary messengers are discussed.
