The role of selected cell wall proteins in protection against mechanical stress during desiccation in plant tissues.
Certain desiccation-tolerant (DT) plants use extensive folding of the cell wall to minimize the damage that occurs from stress experienced during dehydration. Recent work has shown that leaf mechanical properties are also affected by water status. In addition, acquisition of DT involves the synthesis of stress-induced proteins. My aim is to determine whether cell wall proteins influence the mechanical properties of cell walls during the drying of DT plants that display differences in mechanical properties.

Keren Cooper - scientific officer / lab manager
The majority of my work involves the use of electron microscopy to examine the ultrastructure of desiccation-tolerant and -sensitive plants and immunolocalization of various molecules thought to be associated with desiccation tolerance.
