Regulation of yeast and plant plasma membrane H+-ATPases.

The focus of my research group is to identify and elucidate signal transduction pathways regulating the activity of plasma membrane H+-ATPases as response to both abiotic and biotic stresses. Our focus is on protein kinases, phosphatases and signalling peptides.

A broad range of techniques within biochemistry, bioimaging, molecular biology and biophysics are employed. We have developed pH biosensors especially for in vivo measuring of pH as response to physiological changes.

Expertise within the area of protein-protein interactions, phospho-proteomics, molecular biology, heterologous expression and molecular plant physiology.
