Temperature Integration via Phase change and Translation Of Proteins in plants

Project description

Understanding how plants respond to temperature

The mechanisms by which plants respond to temperature are poorly understood. Two important nodes were recently discovered with regard to temperature perception in plants: one transcriptional – key proteins required for plant temperature responses contain prion-related domains directly controlled by temperature-dependent phase separation – and one translational – preferential translation at high temperatures has been observed. The EU-funded TIPTOP project will build on these discoveries to understand the fundamental principles by which the cell senses and incorporates temperature. The project will investigate how prion-domain proteins sense temperature and control the activity of transcriptional regulators, how high temperature affects translation and how this knowledge can help to engineer specific temperature response networks in yeasts and plants.
