Visualization of plant Hormone dynamics using BioLuminescence during Abiotic Stress

Project description

Investigation of hormone dynamics in plants under abiotic stress conditions

Plants are frequently exposed to adverse environmental conditions, called abiotic stresses. These stresses result in morphological, physiological, biochemical, and molecular changes that prevent plants from reaching their full potential, limiting crop productivity. A consequence of abiotic stresses is an increased production of reactive oxygen species and subsequent oxidative stress. To survive, plants adapt themselves to stress conditions and involve protective mechanisms, including protection against abiotic and oxidative stress. The EU-funded HorLumAS project aims to use bioluminescence to carry out an investigation of hormonal fluxes in conditions of abiotic stress in Arabidopsis.
