Project description

Stress and growth responses are modulated by signal transduction mechanisms that seem universally employed by different phytohormones and involve pleiotropic and specific proteins. In this project we will functionally characterise two novel proteins that have been isolated in an ‘interactomics’ screen and are potentially involved in the jasmonate signalling cascades that steer plant growth and defence.
