Final Report - OXYREG (Regulation of the production of reactive oxygen species by the plant NADPH oxidase and its role in pathogen response and in response to other environmental factors)

Project ID: 207203
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This is the final report of the OXYREG project, which is funded under the European Commission (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is one of the earlier responses observed following pathogen infection in plants. In plant defence, ROS are not direct killers but signals that mediate activation of the defences. Plants use ROS-derived signals in a variety of developmental contexts and in abiotic stress. Thus it is important to understand the signalling controls that allow plant cells to interpret ROS-dependent signals. The project used functional genomics tools to decipher the functions of the plant NADPH oxidase gene family.

The study had two main aims: to investigate the regulation of Rboh-dependent NADPH oxidase activity and its function in control of ROS production, pathogen and other responses; and to examine the regulation of plant NADPH oxidase by heterotrimeric G-proteins, especially in the context of defence response and cell death.
