Research Summary

Current research programmes, recent publications etc are available on the Portal for the laboratory of Professor Holdsworth: HERE

Keywords: The N-end rule pathway of ubiquitin-mediated targeted proteolysis, oxygen and nitric oxide (NO) sensing, plant-environment interactions, abiotic and biotic stress responses, biochemical genetics.

Current areas of interest include:

  • Characterisation of the plant N-end rule pathway of targeted proteolysis.
  • Understanding the role of targeted proteolysis in sensing plant-environment interactions.
  • Gasotransmitters and gas sensing.
  • Providing molecular resources and conceptual frameworks that plant breeders and growers can use.

The Virtual Seed Web Resource

This online resource provides queryable interfaces for Gene Networks associated with seed development, dormancy and germination. Users can zoom into networks, search and highlight genes of interest and download images of network representations.
