Acclimation of protein import into chloroplasts



Bild B06


We will analyse the role of preprotein phosphorylation in import acclimation, study regulative features of the responsible kinases and identify the phosphatase(s) involved in the mandatory dephosphoryla-tion prior to import. We will study the acclimation effects of high light and cold on the import process itself and determine the identity of the participating import and redox mediators. Novel import modu-lators will be detected by an EMS-based screen relying on a mutant DHFR-mediated MTX-resistance.
