Project description

Auxin is one of the most important regulators of plant development. Recently, we found that calcium plays an important rol in the regulation of auxin tranport. Here, we will screen a chemical library for inhibitors of auxin-induced Ca2+ signaling. Through the analysis and characterisation of such molecules and their targets, we aim to unravel the underlying molecular mechanism
