研究方向

研究方向

本研究团队注重豆科植物生长发育调控和共生固氮机理方面的研究。研究方向包括下面几个领域。

1. 叶型调控机理。作为光合作用的主要器官,叶片的生长,形状和类型等指标对植物产量起重要的调控作用。大部分豆科植物的叶型属于复叶。几年前,我们对调控豆科植物复叶发育的分子机理的了解还是非常有限。利用遗传和分子生物学手段,我们从豆科模式植物,蒺藜苜蓿(Medicago truncatula)中分离和分析了多个重要的调控基因(SGL1,PALM1,FCL1,ELP1, PHAN, PIN10)。现期工作利用遗传,分子生物学,生物化学等手段,分离调控复叶叶型发育的新基因,分析它们的作用机理, 以及阐明它们与已知基因、信号传导途径的关系。

 

2. 植物器官生长调控机理。 植物营养和生殖器官的生长受植物本身的发育途径和外界环境的影响。在发育过程中,植物器官的生长受细胞分裂和分化的活性和周期调控。利用遗传和转录表达分析,我们从蒺藜苜蓿中分离到一个调控营养和生殖器官大小的关键蛋白(BS1)。我们的研究表明BS1通过抑制细胞分裂来调控器官生长周期。我们的研究进一步表明在豆科作物大豆中,BS1同源基因与BS1类似,调控营养和生殖器官的大小。现期工作利用分子生物学进一步研究BS1调控细胞分裂的机理。另外,利用分子生物学和遗传学的手段,解析BS1和已知的调控器官生长的蛋白的相互作用。

 

 

3. 共生固氮。豆科植物能与土壤固氮菌通过一系列信号传导过程,建立共生关系,形成全新的器官(根瘤)。在根瘤侵染细胞中,固氮菌将空气中的氮气转化成宿主可利用的氨。这个过程需要消耗大量宿主提供的能量和碳源。因此,宿主对根瘤的数目,生物固氮的活性和周期有严格的控制。目前,对豆科植物-根瘤菌前期信号传导途径已经有比较深入的了解。但是,对后期的信号传导途径,宿主细胞和根瘤菌的共生关系方面的了解还是非常有限。本研究团队在过去十几年里通过对蒺藜苜蓿突变体文库的筛选,已经分离出大量的共生固氮方面的突变体。现期工作利用遗传,生化和分子生物学的方法,分离和分析共生固氮方面新的调控基因。另外,对已经分离出的基因进行功能,机理研究。
