BluF(YcgF) has an N-terminal blue light-responsive FAD-binding BLUF domain and a defective C-terminal cyclic-di-GMP phosphodiesterase EAL domain, but does not degrade c-di-GMP, nor does c-di-GMP appear to regulate the BluF(YcgF)-responsive genes (Sommerfeldt, 2009; Tschowri, 2009). Light induces a conformational change and dimerization of BluF(YcgF) (Terazima, 2011). The cold-inducibility of bluF(ycgF) is dependent on the presence of the pnp gene.
