Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Biological function
PHYTOCHROME A is a photorecpetor responsible for response to red/far-red light.

The protein is important in the de-etiolataion of seedlings during emergence, preventing excessive elongation growth, sensing degree of shade, and perception of daylength. It has also been implicated in flowering time regulation and gene regulation in Arabidopsis thaliana.
