Transcript patterns elicited in response to attack reveal, at the molecular level, how plants respond to aggressors. These patterns are fashioned both by inflicted physical damage as well as by biological components displayed or released by the attacker. Different types of attacking organisms might therefore be expected to elicit different transcription programs in the host. Using a large-scale DNA microarray, we characterized gene expression in damaged as well as in distal Arabidopsis thaliana ...[more]
Project description:Compare gene expression in the resting leaves of Arabidopsis thaliana WT with the mutants fou2 and tpc1-2. To analyse the contribution of the fou2 and tpc1-2 mutations in Arabidopsis thaliana to gene expression, transcript levels in the resting leaves of Arabidopsis were measured using 4 weeks-old plants grown in control conditions (long day).
