Quick Reference

Any of a class of photosensitive flavoproteins that are sensitive to blue light and trigger reorientating growth of a plant towards a light source (i.e. phototropism). They also cause opening of stomata and movement of chloroplasts inside leaves. Light activates phototropins by inducing autophosphorylation.
