DEK1 calpain in land plant development and evolution

We aim to contribute to the understanding of DEK1 function by determining the structure of DEK1 protein and to identify its calpain substrate(s).

Endosperm development

During our long lasing interest in nuclear endosperm we have addressed a number of aspects, including the biochemistry of starch synthesis, cell biology, genetics, developmental biology ...

Wheat genomics
