Tomorrow, Wednesday the 23th, is another guest seminar in our research neighbors – Plant Signal Research group in Universiy of Tartu.
Speaker: Dr. Assaf Mosquna from Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Title: “Selective Activation of ABA Receptors”
Time and place: Wednesday, 23.08.17, 11:15; Institute of Technology, room 121 (big auditorium in 1st floor).
Abstract: In land plants, the ABA signaling cascade is comprised of numerous receptors. We defined a set of mutations that stabilize the receptors either, in their activated forms, constitutively or in the presence of an orthogonal ligand. This enables us to systematically reconstruct plant stress response by activating a single receptor at a time.
