The dimeric molecular structure of pea phytochrome (monomer molecular mass 114 kDa) in the red-light-absorbing form was studied with reference to the structures of its molecular domains in a monomer (an N-terminal 59-kDa chromophoric domain and a C-terminal 55-kDa nonchromophoric domain) using small-angle X-ray scattering, and a 'four-leaved shape' model is proposed. The propriety of the model was confirmed by images of the molecule obtained by rotary shadowing electron microscopy.
