The role of polyamines in the process of plant autophagy

Submitted by Lenka Gemperlová on Tue, 02/13/2018 - 16:09


The aim of the project is to evaluate the relationship between polyamine metabolism and autophagy in plants. Autophagy will be followed in two experimental systems - in tobacco BY-2 cell culture and in coniferous embryogenic cultures. Firstly, the polyamine metabolism will be monitored during induced autophagy, then the process of autophagy will be studied after exogenous application of higher polyamines or endogenous modulation of polyamine synthesis. The obtained results will contribute to understanding of the function of polyamines in plant autophagy.
