Use shotgun proteomics (LC-MS/MS) to collect data on the entire abscission proteome. Protein quantification will be accomplished using di-methylation and spectral counting. Implement the new knowledge regarding regulation of floral organ abscission in Arabidopsis, in the ethylene-induced abscission of agriculturally important plants, i.e., soybean and tomato. Determine if an IDA signaling path is essential for organ abscission in tomato and soybean and determine its interaction with ethylene and auxin signaling.
