A model of photosynthesis regulation by ion fluxes in conditions of variable light

Prof Spetea conducts experiments in light of fluctuating intensity on the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana.

Prof Cornelia Spetea and her team at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, study ion transport proteins and genes involved in the regulation of photosynthesis in conditions of abrupt changes in light intensity. Research on this topic is important because light fluctuations constantly occur in the natural environment and affect photosynthesis and growth. Their proposed model could act as a knowledge […]

Subcellular dissection of plant immunity towards bacteria

Subcellular dissection of plant immunity towards bacteria

In the plant kingdom, disease is an exception rather than a rule. That is because plants have an immune system. A plants’ immune system consists of several signalling pathways that act together to counteract microbial pathogens. However, there is not enough known about the subcellular pathways that allow proteins to move within and out of the plant cell and ward […]
