Photosensory Biology book from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Photosensory Receptors
edited by
Winslow R. Briggs
and John L. Spudich

Handbook of Photosensory Receptors is the first comprehensive resource on photosensory receptors from archaea, bacteria, plants and animals that compiles the data on all known classes of photoreceptors, creating a must-have reference for students and researchers for many years to come.

Each of the molecular mechanisms of light perception is systematically covered, with emphasis given to the primary photoreceptor pigments, their photochemistry and regulation.

As such, Handbook of Photosensory Receptors is the first resource to compare the different types of photosensory receptors found in different organisms, as well as their role in cellular physiology.

Contents:

  1. Microbial rhodopsins : phylogenetic and functional diversity
  2. Sensory rhodopsin signaling in green flagellate algae
  3. Visual pigments as photoreceptors
  4. Structural and functional aspects of the mammalian rod-cell photoreceptor rhodopsin
  5. A novel light sensing pathway in the eye : conserved features of inner retinal photoreception in rodents, man and teleost fish
  6. The phytochromes
  7. Phytochrome signaling
  8. Phytochromes in microorganisms
  9. Light-activated intracellular movement of phytochrome
  10. Plant cryptochromes : their genes, biochemistry, and physiological roles
  11. Plant cryptochromes and signaling
  12. Animal cryptochromes
  13. Blue light sensing and signaling by the phototropins
  14. LOV-domain photochemistry
  15. LOV-domain structure, dynamics, and diversity
  16. The ZEITLUPE family of putative photoreceptors
  17. Photoreceptor gene families in lower plants
  18. Neurospora photoreceptors
  19. Photoactive yellow protein, the xanthopsin
  20. Hypericin-like photoreceptors
  21. The antirepressor AppA uses the novel flavin-binding BLUF domain as a blue-light-absorbing photoreceptor to control photosystem synthesis
  22. Discovery and characterization of photoactivated adenylyl cyclase (PAC), a novel blue-light receptor flavoprotein, from Euglena gracilis
