Plant endomembrane research group
The plant endomembrane research group is one of the major groups within the School of Life Sciences at Oxford Brookes University. The main themes of the research are: Hawes group - organisation of the endoplasmic reticulum, structure and function of the ER-Golgi interface and the role of Golgi matrix proteins. Evans group -proteins of the nuclear envelope. Runions group - dynamics of plasma membrane proteins. Golgi on the ER of a tobacco epidermal cell
Work centres on the application of green fluorescent protein (GFP) and its various spectral derivatives as live reporters in plant cells using confocal microscopy. Double expression of a YFP Golgi contstruct and a GFP-ER construct
Golgi-GFP expression in arabidopsis root hairs
We also have considerable expertise in immunocytochemistry (LM and EM) and have established a high pressure freezing facility for electron microscopy.
