Mechanisms and regulation of plant defence responses

Lenka Luhová, Marek Petřivalský, Lucie Činčalová, Tereza Jedelská, Martina Janků, Jana Sekaninová, Jana Jahnová, Dan Vojtovič

  • Functions of reactive nitrogen and oxygen species (RNS, ROS) in plant responses to pathogens and plant resistance mechanisms
  • Role of ROS and RNS in plant responses to abiotic stress factors (salinity, high temperature, heavy metals)
  • Role of ROS and RNS in plant protoplast regeneration
  • Role of protein S-nitrosation and S-nitrosoglutathione reductase in plant signalling
  • Role of ROS and RNS in plant responses to microbial elicitors
  • Role of post-translational modifications of protein cysteins in signalling pathways of sulfane during plant responses to stress factors
