  • Structure and Function of the Plant Golgi Apparatus

    My special research interest lies in plant Golgi tethering factors and their possible roles in Golgi biogenesis, structure and regulation of protein trafficking. To characterise these proteins we are using advanced confocal laser scanning microscopy methods such as fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) to study interactions between golgins and small GTPases or optical laser tweezers to pull Golgi bodies away from the ER in living plant cells.
