SPOTLIGHT: Plants have unique aspects of the spatiotemporal regulation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and plasma membrane (PM) connectivity in response to the environmental stress.
April 2019, written by Adrian Li & Dr. Eunkyoung Lee BIF equipment used : Olympus FV1000 confocal microscope, PE Spinning disk confocal microscope Plants sense and respond to changes of environmental conditions, such as drought, extreme temperatures, and salinity. At the intercellular level, highlycoordinated stress response occurs among various organelles. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a […]
