  1. Jung A, Domratcheva T, Tarutina M, Wu Q, Ko W, Shoeman R, et al. Structure of a bacterial BLUF photoreceptor: insights into blue light-mediated signal transduction. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2005;102:12350-5 pubmed publisher
    ..The structure suggests a unique photochemical signaling switch in which the absorption of light induces a structural change in the rim surrounding the hook, thereby changing the protein interface between BLUF and the output domain...
  2. Jung A, Reinstein J, Domratcheva T, Shoeman R, Schlichting I. Crystal structures of the AppA BLUF domain photoreceptor provide insights into blue light-mediated signal transduction. J Mol Biol. 2006;362:717-32 pubmed publisher
    ..We propose that the blue light signal is transmitted towards the surface of the BLUF domain via His44, which serves as a reporter of active site changes...
  3. Udvarhelyi A, Domratcheva T. Glutamine rotamers in BLUF photoreceptors: a mechanistic reappraisal. J Phys Chem B. 2013;117:2888-97 pubmed publisher
    ..Finally, we demonstrate that the tautomerized glutamine is consistent with our criteria and observations of the BLUF light state...
  4. Winkler A, Heintz U, Lindner R, Reinstein J, Shoeman R, Schlichting I. A ternary AppA-PpsR-DNA complex mediates light regulation of photosynthesis-related gene expression. Nat Struct Mol Biol. 2013;20:859-67 pubmed publisher
    ..We discuss implications of these results for regulation by light and oxygen, highlighting new insights into blue light-mediated signal transduction. ..
