Stem cells and fate control in plant stomatal development
The plant epidermis is a critical interface between the atmosphere and internal plant tissues, which allows plants to succeed on land by restricting their exposure to the environment. Stomata, closable pores on the plant surface bounded by specialized guard cells, are an integral part of epidermal function. By controlling ...
Molecular regulations and lineage tracing in early Mouse embryogenesis
This dissertation research aims to understand the regulations and developmental patterns of mouse early embryogenesis, in order to gain comprehensive knowledge in human early development to further the ultimate goal of designing future novel and effective regenerative therapies. The first part of this research focuses on ...
The what, when & how of seedling growth regulation.
Photomorphogenesis has two stages. First, seedlings detect light and open their embryonic leaves (cotyledons). Second, seedlings optimize their light environment by regulated elongation of the embryonic stem (hypocotyl). Several hormones, including auxin, brassinosteroids (BR) and gibberellins (GA), orchestrate the growth of ...
