Abstract

Circadian rhythmic plant leaf movement, called nyctinasty, is controlled by a time-course change in the internal concentration of the leaf-movement factor in the plant body. We report that specific binding protein (210 and 180kDa) for a leaf-movement factor, potassium lespedezate, is contained in the plasma membrane of the plant motor cell. These proteins would be potential receptors for leaf-movement factor to control the leaf movement.
