Scientists at the CBGP, in a study led by Dr. Luis Oñate-Sánchez, have identified two important proteins (homeodomain transcription factors) that regulate gene expression only in the epidermis and upon perception of the hormone gibberellin. An article published in the Plant Cell describes this mechanism required for seed germination.
As an invited guest editor of the Journal of Plant Physiology, Ingo Dreyer organized a special issue on ‘Potassium (K+) effect in plants’. This compendium provides a stock-check of the current knowledge in the field, and will provide readers with a first glimpse into a holistic view on ‘Potassium (K+) in Plants’.
Dr. Ane Sesma, UPM lecturer and CBGP researcher, has coedited together with Dr. Tobias von der Haar from the University of Kent (United Kingdom) the book: "Fungal RNA Biology" from the editorial Springer.
