■Research summary
Molecular mechanisms of zinc deficient stresses tolerance in plants

 Plants are sessile organisms that need to live in several places even though environmental conditions are not suitable for them. We have special interest in the molecules involved in tolerance to Zn deficiency in plant cells. Among the essential trace elements in plants, Zn shortage threatens nearly 50% of cultivated fields worldwide. Therefore, we have been searching for proteins and peptides with essential functions for tolerance to Zn deficiency, by applying comprehensive omics techniques as a strategy. Proteins and peptides of particular interest are studied one by one using biochemical and molecular biological approaches, to understand how plants adapt to Zn deficiency. We have been especially focusing on peptides that were recently identified in plants by genome wide bioinformatics approaches.
