Light is one of the most important environmental factors some cases, oxygen acts as a different environmental, light-in-
dependent stimulus of photosynthetic gene expression, provid-influencing gene expression in photosynthetic organisms. In
particular, genes for components of the photosynthetic ma- ing an additional redox signal and a different kind of redox
control. In this review, we summarise present knowledge aboutchinery show light-dependent expression. In recent years, it
has become clear that photosynthesis itself contributes impor- such redox control mechanisms and analyse common proper-
tant signals to this light control of gene expression by means ties as well as differences in the various signalling pathways.
