Phytochrome-interacting factors (PIFs) are members of basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors and the primary partners of phytochromes (PHY) in light signaling. PIFs interact with the P forms of phytochrome to play an important role in the pathways of response to light and temperature in plants. In this study, 30, 12, and 16 potential PIF genes were identified in Brassica napus, Brassica rapa, Brassica oleracea, respectively, which could be divided into three subgroups. Read More
