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

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

Approach:
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.
