研究工作

研究组利用结构生物学、生物化学及遗传学方法,研究植物重要生理过程跨膜转运与信号传递的分子机理;揭示植物体生命活动的基本规律,为作物分子设计育种提供分子基础。研究工作以通讯作者发表在Nature、Nat Struct Mol Biol、Nature Plants、Cell Res、PNAS、Nat Commun、EMBO Rep、Mol Plant等期刊上。

1)植物跨膜转运的分子机理:跨细胞膜的物质转运是细胞与内外环境之间进行物质交流的主要方式,与生命体的生长发育和环境响应等密切相关。探究植物光合产物及营养物质跨膜转运蛋白的结构与机理是我们的研究兴趣之一。

2)植物跨膜信号传递机理:跨细胞膜的信号传递是细胞与内外环境间进行信息交流的主要方式。探究植物跨膜感受环境信号的蛋白复合体的结构与信号传递机理是我们的另一研究兴趣。

3)植物重要活性小分子的合成机理解析与分子设计:研究植物体产生的活性代谢物的合成过程与机理,基于蛋白结构与机理开展分子设计。
