  4. 4. Designing the Superplant: Increasing Lipid Signaling for Enhanced Phosphorus Uptake

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Louise Jedemark; [2021]
    Keywords : Lipid flippases; Arabidopsis; Yeast; Transport biology; Applied Biochemistry; Tillämpad biokemi; Biology and Life Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Phosphate is fundamental for optimal growth and reproduction for plants. However, due to low solubility, not all phosphorus in the soil is available to the plant. It has recently been discovered that plants can take up complex phosphate-containing organic compounds, such as phospholipids. READ MORE
