Research Interests

My research focuses on the role of sugar signalling in plant development and in the perception of environmental signals. For example, my group exploits natural genetic variation to investigate the genetic basis and molecular mechanisms that regulate leaf senescence. Most of this research is conducted with the model species Arabidopsis, but we also use a perennial relative of Arabidopsis, Arabis alpina, to explore how senescence is regulated by environmental conditions in perennial plants. In addition, I am interested in the pathways that determine plant growth in response to temperature, for example in perennial grasses.

 

Key recent findings

Regulation of leaf senescence in annual plants

In annual plants leaf senescence plays an important role in the recycling of nutrients to the seeds. Our main interest is exploring the internal signals that regulate this process in response to the environment. Using Arabidopsis as a model, we have shown that sugar accumulation is involved in the regulation of leaf senescence and that the signalling molecule trehalose-6-phosphate is required for this response.

 

The role of trehalose-6-phosphate in regulating plant metabolism and development

Trehalose-6-phosphate is a signal for high carbon availability in plants and thus plays a role in the regulation of leaf senescence. It is also required for the recovery of growth, e.g. after a period of cold temperature. Collaboration with Matthew Paul (Rothamsted Research) and Henriette Schluepmann (Utrecht University) has shown that trehalose-6-phosphate acts by inhibiting the protein kinase SnRK1.

 

Regulation of leaf senescence in perennial plants

In perennial herbs leaf senescence is required for nutrient recycling to support the growth of new leaves. However in contrast to annual plants, senescence has to be limited to prevent plant death. Using the perennial model Arabis alpina, we compare senescence regulation in perennial plants with our knowledge from Arabidopsis. We have found large natural variation in the regulation of senescence by sugar availability and growth temperature in different accessions of A. alpina and explore how this regulation enables adaptation to the natural growth habitat.
