Abstract: This review summarized the studies concerning with the effects of light signaling(such as light intensity,light quality,photoperiod and circadian rhythm)on Chl accumulation and its biosynthesis-related genes. The regulation mechanism of Chl biosynthesis-related genes by transcription factors in the light signaling pathway and histone epigenetic modifications were emphasized,which may help us to explore effective pathways and target molecules in light-regulation of Chl biosynthesis,and promote Chl accumulation via genetic engineering and environmental regulation.

Key words: light, chlorophyll, biosynthesis, transcription factor, epigenetic regulation
