Article

Perception of biotic and abiotic stresses often leads to stomatal closure in plants1,2. Rapid influx of calcium ions (Ca²⁺) across the plasma membrane plays an important role in this response, but the identity of Ca²⁺ channels involved has remained elusive3,4. Here, we report that the Arabidopsis thaliana Ca²⁺-permeable channel OSCA1.3 controls sto...
Article
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are important messengers in eukaryotic organisms and their production is tightly controlled. Active extracellular ROS production by NADPH oxidases in plants is triggered by receptor-like protein kinase (RLK)-dependent signaling networks. Here we show that the cysteine-rich RLK CRK2 kinase activity is required for plant...

High salinity is an increasingly prevalent source of stress to which plants must adapt. The receptor-like protein kinases (RLKs), including members of the cysteine-rich receptor-like kinase (CRK) subfamily, are a highly expanded family of transmembrane proteins in plants that are largely responsible for communication between cells and the extracell...

Reactive oxygen species (ROS)-dependent signaling pathways from chloroplasts and mitochondria merge at the nuclear protein RADICAL-INDUCED CELL DEATH1 (RCD1). RCD1 interacts in vivo and suppresses the activity of the transcription factors ANAC013 and ANAC017, which mediate a ROS-related retrograde signal originating from mitochondrial complex III....

Full-text available
Signaling from chloroplasts and mitochondria, both dependent on reactive oxygen species (ROS), merge at the nuclear protein RADICAL-INDUCED CELL DEATH1 (RCD1). ROS produced in the chloroplasts affect the abundance, thiol redox state and oligomerization of RCD1. RCD1 directly interacts in vivo with ANAC013 and ANAC017 transcription factors, which ar...

In plants, receptor-like kinases (RLKs) and extracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) contribute to the communication between the environment and the interior of the cell. Apoplastic ROS production is a frequent result of RLK signaling in a multitude of cellular processes. However, it is as yet unclear how ROS signaling downstream of receptor act...

Cysteine-rich receptor-like kinases (CRKs) are transmembrane proteins characterized by the presence of two domains of unknown function 26 (DUF26) in their ectodomain. The CRKs form one of the largest groups of receptor-like protein kinases in plants, but their biological functions have so far remained largely uncharacterized. We conducted a large-s...

Fluoxetine is used as a therapeutic agent for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), including Fragile X syndrome (FXS). The treatment often associates with disruptive behaviors such as agitation and disinhibited behaviors in FXS. To identify mechanisms that increase the risk to poor treatment outcome, we investigated the behavioral and cellular effects o...

In this project we aim to understand the biochemical functions of the CRKs during signal transduction in biotic and also abiotic environmental stimuli. We also investigate the mechanistic differences between different clades of CRKs in higher plants.
