    Red illumination of the dark adapted 15Z Pr state of Cph1Δ (Figure 1B, red curve) initiates forward photoconversion (Pr to Pfr), generating the primary isomerized Lumi-Rf intermediate. Lumi-Rf thermally evolves via several intermediates to generate the 15E Pfr photoproduct (Figure 1B, dark red curve) on a >100 ms timescale. The dark-stable 15Z Pr state can be regenerated from 15E Pfr either rapidly by far-red light (∼700 nm) or via spontaneous dark reversion on a very slow (>24 h) timescale.
