Abstract

Light signals perceived by photoreceptors are transduced into the nucleus to regulate gene expression and development. The COP9 protein complex localized in the nucleus has a central role in modulating light-regulated development, and may have a role in regulating development in general in all organisms. This review considers recent advances in the study of the COP9 complex and its sub-units in plant and animal systems, and discusses the possible functional implications.
