    ABSTRACT: A basis for current-mode class AB operation in CMOS circuits is presented and the linear behavior of class AB current-mode circuits is discussed. A CMOS class AB current-conveyor designed by referring to the presented principle is proposed. This current-conveyor offers a low input resistance for a small bias current which makes it suitable for low-consumption designs

    ABSTRACT: Cryptochromes are blue light receptors that regulate photomorphogenesis in plants and the circadian clock in animals and plants. Arabidopsis cryptochrome 2 (CRY2) mediates blue light inhibition of hypocotyl elongation and photoperiodic control of floral initiation. CRY2 undergoes blue light-induced phosphorylation, which was hypothesized to be associated with CRY2 photoactivation. To further investigate how light activates CRY2, we analyzed the physiological activities and phosphorylation of various CRY2 fusion proteins in transgenic plants. Our results showed that an 80-residue motif, referred to as NC80, was sufficient to confer the physiological function of CRY2. The GUS-NC80 fusion protein expressed in transgenic plants is constitutively active but unphosphorylated, suggesting that the blue light-induced CRY2 phosphorylation causes a conformational change to derepress the NC80 motif. Consistent with this hypothesis, the CRY2 C-terminal tail was found to be required for the blue light-induced CRY2 phosphorylation but not for the CRY2 activity. We propose that the PHR domain and the C-terminal tail of the unphosphorylated CRY2 form a "closed" conformation to suppress the NC80 motif in the absence of light. In response to blue light, the C-terminal tail of CRY2 is phosphorylated and electrostatically repelled from the surface of the PHR domain to form an "open" conformation, resulting in derepression of the NC80 motif and signal transduction to trigger photomorphogenic responses.

    ABSTRACT: The reduction potential of the (FADH-/FADH*) couple in DNA photolyase was measured, and the value was found to be significantly higher than the values estimated in the literature. In the absence of substrate, the enzyme has a reduction potential of 16 +/- 6 mV vs NHE. In the presence of excess substrate the reduction potential increases to 81 +/- 8 mV vs NHE. The increase in reduction potential has physiological relevance since it gives the catalytic state greater resistance to oxidation. This is the first measurement of a reduction potential for this class of DNA-repair enzymes and the larger family of blue-light photoreceptors.
