We are using molecular and genetic approaches to gain insight into the mechanisms that control plant growth and development. Many plant signal transduction pathways involve reversible protein phosphorylation events that regulate key steps in development, as well as responses to the environment. Our goal is to gain insight into the function of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A), an enzyme that performs important roles in phosphorylation circuits governing growth, morphogenesis and cell fate.
