  • A few months after her Eureka moment, Losi, based at the University of Parma, began surfing through sequence databases and soon identified three species of chemotrophic bacteria that carried conserved LOV domains:

    News from The Scientist

  • "We were doing everything possible to avoid seeing the effects of light on microbes-that's basically the story of microbiology," says Mark Gomelsky at the University of Wyoming, who recently identified the BLUF domain, another type of blue-light protein that may be even more widely prevalent in chemotrophic bacteria than LOV.

    News from The Scientist

  • He's not the only microbiologist to be perplexed by the phenomenon; so far, the idea of light as a specific physiological signal in chemotrophic bacteria is still on the fringes of research-it's simply not something that microbiologists are used to considering.

    News from The Scientist

  • So far, researchers have demonstrated the physiological relevance of light to a small handful of chemotrophic bacterial species,

    News from The Scientist
