Beskrivning av projektet
The current project investigated the important roles of the chloroplast thylakoid lumen in the plant's response to envronmental changes. Over 60 proteins in the thylakoid lumen of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana were identified, some for the first time, and their relative abundances were quantified. The effects of lumen pH on regulating photosynthesis and chloroplast signalling was determined through analysis of gene expression, which identified oxylipin hormones and reactive oxygen species to be the major photosynthetic signalling mechanisms in response to short-term environmental changes.
