Molecular basis of Metabolic Regulation by Nutrient Signals in Plants

Research Project Outline

Plant nutrients are not only substrates for biosynthesis but also signaling molecules associated with regulation of gene expression and metabolism. Plant nutrients from the environment and their metabolites are deeply involved in the complex network for regulation of growth and substance production in plants. Comprehensive analysis of nutrient signaling systems and metabolic regulation by nutrient signals will disclose highly sophisticated mechanisms underlying substance production and will pave the way to developing a new methodology to control production of useful materials in plants.
