Project: Elucidation of the signal transduction cascade ocuring after elicitation of tobacco cells with yasmonates.

project duration
01-OCT-01 – 30-SEP-05
The aim of the project is recieving more information about the methyljasmonate induced signaling cascade, that is needed to activate the production of secondary metabolites. Initially, a genome-wide expression analysis is performed on tobacco cells, elicited with methyljasmonate, by using CDNA-AFLP Transcript Profiling. A functional and pharmacological analysis will be done on some early and transienty expressed signaling compounds to elucidate the function and order of working of different signaling compounds.
