1 Natural
1.1 Rhodopsins
1.1.1 used in rat to control neuronal activity, restore visual function, control cardiac activity
1.1.2 Channelrhodopsin ChR1 and ChR2 from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii ChR2 better expressed inmost hosts (10X) blue light: depolarization similar to event that causes neurons to fire VChR1 from Volvox carteri green/yellow activated variant NpHR1 from Natronomonas pharaonis yellow light 590nm: hyperpolarization Simultaneous expression with ChR1 to drive cardiac function in Zebra fish their wavelengths do not overlap also to turn neuronal activity on and off similar to neuronal hyperpolarization, stops neuronal activity chloride channel; helps maintain osmotic balance during growth 7-pass transmembrane proteins and long C-terminal region chromophore: all-trans-retinal covalently linked to the protein through a protonated schiff base to a lysine residue of helix-7 photostimulation causes retinal isomerization from all-trans to 13-cis-retinal and covalent link to 7TM triggering conformational change and gating (opening of the channel pore) first by Deisseroth and colleagues in 2005 single component unlike chARGe MChR1 from Mesostigma viride; green light
1.1.3 retinal cofactor readily present in many cell types
1.1.4 Rhodopsin is both an opsin and a G-protein coupled receptor
1.2 Phytochromes

1.2.2 bacteriophytochromes Cph1 binds phycocyanobilin light regulated HKRD from Synechocystis PCC6803
1.2.3 red light; red(650nm)/far-red light (730nm) interconversion between Pr and Pfr
1.2.4 Phytochrome A covalently binds bilin chromophore via a cysteine residue isomerizationof bilin around C15-C16 double bond between the C and D rings resulting in the flipping of the D ring

1.3 LOV
1.3.1 plants, fungi, bacteria
1.3.2 blue light
1.3.3 FMN chromophore bound non covalently in the dark
1.3.4 Photochemistry: information of covalent bond between C4a of isoalloxazine ring of FMN and conserved cysteine residue in the apoprotein leads to conformational change with the undocking of the j alpha helix from the beta scaffold and the autophosphorylation of the ser/thr kinae domain at the C-terminus
1.3.5 Application Pa-Rac1 Rac1 is a small GTPase protein that regulates actin cytoskeletal dynamics and cell migration in mammalian cells Lov2-Jalpha fusion with Rac1 sterically inhibits Rac1 active site blue light alleviates caging allowing it to bind to the P21-activated kinase PAK1 leading to polymerization of the actin filaments and genertion of cell localized protusions and movement to control motility of fibroblasts zebrafish embryos drosophila ovary cells LOVTAP replaced the fixl protein from Bradyrhizobium and changed the PAS domain from voltage regulated to light activable tryptophan activated protein Photoactivable caspase 1 to stimulate rapid apoptosis
1.3.6 strengths small and soluble ubiquitous cofactor in most cells tunable/ decay rate variable/ mutagenesis possible
1.3.7 take advantage of dimerization to control gene expression e.g. Dronpa yeast hybrid system FKF1/GI
1.4 BLUF: Blue light utilizing FAD
1.4.1 Prevalent in prokaryotes/ chromophore: FAD 450nm
1.4.2 photochemistry: rearrangement within the hydrogen bon network between N5 and O4 of the active site of FAD and nearby conseerved tyrosine and glutamine residues glutamine flips and signalling is propagated through structural changes in the βscaffold interface and protein protein interactions
1.4.3 Poly adenylyl cyclases: PACs Euglena PAC photorecceptor for phototaxis Composed of two PACα and PACβ subunits. Each contains two BLUF domains linked to two AC domains PACα has proved a powerful tool in non-invasively controlling cAMP levels in the neurons of Drosophila, Xenopus oocytes, and the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans But: large subunit size (> 1000 amino acids), low solubility and high background activity Beggiatoa PAC Soluble protein that is much smaller than Euglena PAC (350 amino acids) Lower dark activity of Beggiatoa PAC compared to Euglena PAC makes it more suitable for controlling intracellular cAMP levels (i.e. less leaky) Utility in generating cAMP from ATP in cultured neurons Specificity of Beggiatoa PAC has already been reengineered to modulate cGMP-dependent signalling cascades
2 Engineered
2.1 Channelrhodopsin: ChR2

2.1.2 substitution of C128 by Ser or D156 by Ala or combination led to an extreme extension of open state up to 30 mins and on and off switching with dual wavelength light protocols
2.2 Rhodopsin
2.2.1 optoXRs intracellular loops of Gt bovine rhodopsins replaced with those of specific adrenergic receptors; chimera Gq from human alpha1 adrenergic receptor: IP2, DAG upregulated Gs from hamster beta2 adrenergic receptor: cGMP upregulated green light; 500nm
2.3 Cph1- based
2.3.1 Cph8 chimera of Cph1 photoreceptor domain fused with EnvZ and the two component EnvZ-OmpR HK system; Red light regulated gene expression system EnvZ-OmpR HK system regulates porin expression in response to osmotic shock enables autophosphorylation of EnvZ and transfer of phosphate group to OmpR Phosphorylated OmpR initiates transcription of promoter OmpC expressing LacZ PCB not synthesized in E. coli, has to be expressed
