Research highlight

Specific protein interactions in Arabidopsis roots

At the tip of a developing and growing root a population of “stem cells” reside. The fate of each cell, hence what kind of root tissue it will become, is determined by special proteins, among which transcription factors play a crucial role. In order to better understand how these proteins regulate root growth specific nteractions have been visualized using FRET-FLIM

The researchers at the University of Amsterdam, Wageningen and Düsseldorf combined their efforts and describe their approach in the latest edition of Nature.
