Final Report - SENSOMETAL (Nanosensors to monitor metal dynamics in living plant cells)

Project ID: 221482
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


This is the publishable summary report for the SENSOMETAL project. Funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework (FP7). SENSOMETAL's main aim was to design or use a set of genetically encoded sensors to monitor in vivo dynamics of Zn2+, Mn2+ or Fe2+ and to introduce these sensors in plants to assess metal homeostasis mechanisms. A set of six high zinc sensitivity sensors were developed. These sensors were successfully used in plant cells either by being transiently expressed in mesophyll protoplasts with imaging coupled to a microfluidic perfusion platform or by stable expression in different genotypes.
