PLANT RESPONSE to ‘friend or foe’: a CELL type specific nuclear proteomics approach

Project description

How plant cell types distinguish friend from foe

Plant responses to 'friend or foe' are regulated in different cell types. The EU-funded PlantCellResponse project will therefore use a state-of-the-art in vivo protein proximity labelling technique to investigate responses to beneficial and pathogenic bacteria in the plant model Arabidopsis thaliana. The research fellow will determine plant responses to the bacteria with plant growth-promoting effects (PGPB), the processes or specialised metabolites involved and the regulatory proteins that control them. They will also investigate the response regulation to PGPB and a pathogen in specific root cell types by generating cell type-specific nuclear proteome data. Finally, PlantCellResponse will characterise the role of specific regulatory protein candidates and their target cell type specific through individual gene by gene experiments.
