At2g42810: PP5.2 (PROTEIN PHOSPHATASE 5.2)

Encodes a phytochrome-specific type 5 serine/threonine protein phosphatase. It dephosphorylates active Pfr-phytochromes. Controls light signal flux by enhancing phytochrome stability and affinity for a signal transducer. It localizes to the cytoplasm in darkness and in the nucleus in light. The gene is alternately spliced. This variant does not contain membrane domains.
