Research issues: Creating a construct for bacterial production system of PVX Coat Protein tagged with mCherry and translocating arginine-rich peptide.
Production and purification of the protein. Investigating the protein uptake and its biological activity in N. benthamiana plants. The fusion protein obtained (6H9R-mCherry-CP) is a possible tool to develop new strategies for investigating the Rx1 activation and resistance mechanism in native conditions. Nematology Department in a nutshell: Best supplied laboratory ever! Truly involved, supportive scientific environment with a full-scale social life! Hard to imagine better place for your thesis, internship or project work!
