Title
Deciphering organelle transport mechanisms in plants
Description

The transport of materials such asmetabolites, protein, amino acids, and nucleotides across organelle membranes isa highly regulated and intricate process in the eukaryotic cell. Transmembraneproteins act as gatekeepers regulating and controlling this crucial process, making them essential for normal plant growth and development. The aim of this proposal is to functionally assess several newly identified transporter proteins located within three essential plant organelles the mitochondria, chloroplast and peroxisomes. We will investigate the transporter function of these proteins and determine their role in plant growth, development and energy homeostasis.
