Several mechanisms which control transcription of genes encoding plastidial proteins in tomato are overviewed: light, the circadian clock, photooxidative stress and tissue-specific factors. Protein factors biruling promoters of genes responding to such stimuli are described, as well as their abundance during the various phases of the light-dark cycle. Finally, the structure and regulation of a novel class of genes encoding plastidial enzymes, controlling carotenoid biosynthesis, are described. © 1993 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
