Abstract: Aureochromes are blue light sensors that act as transcription factors in algae and have been repurposed for the optogenetic control of signaling in mammalian cells. In a recent issue of Structure, Banerjee et al. (2016) shine light on the structure and function of the C-terminal light-sensing domain of Phaeodactylum tricornutum aureochrome1.
