Identification of plant cell wall components exhibiting an elicitor activity and study of the induced signal transduction pathways

Project: Research

Description

The aim of this research is to develop bio-assays in order to screen and identify new natural elicitors that could promote defence reactions in plants. This project focuses on different signalling cascades including the production of reactive oxygen species, their detoxification, the synthesis of phytoalexins and PR proteins.
