osmotic stress transcription factors mass spectrometry arabidopsis thaliana chromatin affinity purification
Osmotic stress (drought, salt) is the most limiting abiotic stress for plant yield. To gain insight in the molecular networks that govern osmotic stress tolerance, we will isolate the transcription factors through chromatin affinity purification. Five transcription factors will be selected for futher functional analysis and their target genes and impact on the resilience against mild osmotic stress will be evaluated.
