The title of Delphine’s project: Pathogen-inducible peroxisomal proteins mediating disease resistance

Delphine will identify and functionally characterize pathogen-inducible plant peroxisomal proteins by proteomics of peroxisomes isolated from A. thaliana plants treated with defense hormones and elicitors or infected with pathogens. Candidate proteins will be further analyzed for their role in peroxisome biology and pathogen defense. At the University of Exeter, Delphine will analyze putative human orthologs of novel plant and yeast peroxisomal proteins, which are predicted to play a role in stress adaptation, by extensive phenotyping of gene knock-down/overexpression in mammalian cells, including a.o. metabolome analysis (MDiscoveries; Potsdam).

Part of the research will be performed at the University of Exeter and MDiscoveries (Potsdam).
