Researchers Prof Andrew Millar
Brief description This project aims to discover how the functions of different proteins change as they age, and to define factors that dictate protein stability inside plants. This project will change protein turnover rates in plants by altering a regulator of this process to assess the role of this regulator in different plant developmental transitions. Expected outcomes include showing how protein abundance can be altered in plants for our future agricultural and biotechnology needs. This will provide significant benefits, such as discovering processes inside plant cells that maintain the quality of different kinds of proteins and propose how different kinds of proteins can be stabilised for plant biotechnology applications.
