The structure of the gene encoding the apoprotein of phytochrome B1 (PHYB1) in tomato has been determined from genomic and cDNA sequences. In contrast to PHYA, PHYB1 lacks an intron upstream of the first ATG. A single transcription start site was found by 5′ RACE at –116. Tomato PHYB1 spans 7 kb starting from the first ATG. The coding region is organized into four exons as for other angiosperm PHY. The deduced apoprotein consists of 1131 amino acids, with a molecular mass of 125.4 kDa. Tomato phytochrome B1 shares 78% and 74% identity with Arabidopsis phytochromes B and D, respectively. Along with the normally spliced full-length transcripts, sequences of reverse transcriptase-PCR clones revealed five types of alternative transcripts. Each type of alternative transcript was missing a considerable part of the coding region, including the chromophore-binding site.
