Descripción
Gibberellins (GAs) are phytohormones required for vegetative and reproductive growth throughout the plant life cycle. GAs regulate gene expression in time and space and their levels can be altered in response to developmental and environmental cues. Several stress conditions, such as drought and salinity, are known to decrease GA biosynthesis and signalling. Although this response increases stress tolerance it reduces plant growth and productivity. The work in the lab focuses on: I) Identification and study of the molecular mechanisms underlying GA responses in different tissues and their role in plant growth and development under different environmental conditions. II) Applying knowledge to improve crop performance. We are using plant seeds as a model to study the integration of environmental signals into the decision to grow since: i) they require GAs to germinate; ii) the "decision" to germinate represents a critical stage in the life cycle of higher plants and is an important ecological and commercial trait; iii) many of the regulators found in this organ have also been recruited by other developmental stages to play similar roles.
