Project: Identification and development of new master regulators of secondary metabolism in plant cells
- project duration
- 01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-08
- Plants synthesize a whole range of secondary metabolites with different functions for men, for instance as pharmaceuticals, pesticides… Biosynthesis of many secondary metabolites can be induced by the stress hormone jasmonate. Very little information is known about the corresponding signalling cascade. In this project master regulators which can increase the production of secondary metabolites are identified in BY-2 cells.
