Project: Identification of inhibitors of the auxin controlled cell division activity during lateral root initiation

project duration
01-OCT-05 – 30-NOV-09
abstract
Chemical genomics makes use of small molecules to disturb signal transduction cascades allowing the identification of the involved proteins. In this wasy vital processes can be studied at any developmental stage and in a part of the plant body. The project aims at the identification of inhibitory compounds of cell cycle activation in the root. Furthermore, the in vivo targets of these inhibitors will be tracked down.
