    • Horizontal transfer of an adaptive chimeric photoreceptor from bryophytes to ferns. 

      Li, F; Villarreal, JC; Kelly, S; Rothfels, CJ; Melkonian, M; Frangedakis, E; Ruhsam, M; ... (10 authors) (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2014-05)
      Ferns are well known for their shade-dwelling habits. Their ability to thrive under low-light conditions has been linked to the evolution of a novel chimeric photoreceptor--neochrome--that fuses red-sensing phytochrome and ...
    • Phytochrome diversity in green plants and the origin of canonical plant phytochromes 

      Li, F; Melkonian, M; Rothfels, CJ; Villarreal, JC; Stevenson, DW; Graham, SW; Wong, GK; ... (9 authors) (Nature communications, 2015)
    • Phytochrome diversity in green plants and the origin of canonical plant phytochromes. 

      Melkonian, M; Pryer, KM; Rothfels, CJ; Graham, SW; Li, F; Villarreal, JC; Wong, GK; ... (9 authors) (Nat Commun, 2015-07-28)
      Phytochromes are red/far-red photoreceptors that play essential roles in diverse plant morphogenetic and physiological responses to light. Despite their functional significance, phytochrome diversity and evolution across ...
    • The Origin and Evolution of Phototropins 

      Rothfels, CJ; Wong, GK; Stevenson, DW; Li, F; Mathews, S; Melkonian, M; Pryer, KM; ... (9 authors) (2015)
    • The origin and evolution of phototropins. 

      Li, F; Rothfels, CJ; Melkonian, M; Villarreal, JC; Stevenson, DW; Graham, SW; Wong, GK - S; ... (9 authors) (Front Plant Sci, 2015)
      Plant phototropism, the ability to bend toward or away from light, is predominantly controlled by blue-light photoreceptors, the phototropins. Although phototropins have been well-characterized in Arabidopsis thaliana, their ...
