Regulation of plasma membrane nanoscale dynamics in plant immune signaling
Plasma membrane (PM) nanoscale dynamics emerges as a regulatory element shaping the outcome of plant-microbe interactions. Recent reports suggest that plants and microbes evolved mechanisms to respectively orchestrate and manipulate the organization of the PM for their own benefit. Our project seeks to leverage plant and microbial molecular and genetic diversity to understand how microbes manipulate membrane nanoscale dynamics and to identify counteracting measures evolved by plants.
