Research Project: The Identification and Characterization of Hidden Redox Reactions in Plant Metabolic Pathways

Location: Chemistry Research

Project Number: 6036-11210-001-01-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2017
End Date: Jul 31, 2020

The objective of this cooperative research project is to identify and characterize hidden redox reactions in plant metabolic pathways.

Genes involved in hidden redox reactions will be identified by comparative genomics and co-expression analysis. Their enzymes will be characterized in vitro and plant (mainly Arabidopsis) or cyanobacterial mutants isolated and analyzed for production of the associated metabolites.
