Postdoc Position
in the laboratory of
Dr. Alan Jones
University of North Carolina

Programmed cell death (PCD)  occurring during the differentiation of
tracheary elements shares some features with animal PCD but has a
striking difference.  Nascent hydrolases are sequestered in the
vacuole until a signal causes the vacuole to disrupt to release its
autolytic agents.  The trigger of death is under tight developmental
regulation.  Recent evidence from our lab indicates that the trigger
is by a secreted serine protease.   Secreted regulatory proteases,
such as in the Easter proteolytic cascade in Drosophila axis
establishment, is gaining prominence as the linchpin in the
coordination of many developmental processes.    A postdoc is sought
to join the effort to clone the secreted protease and substrate genes
from Arabidopsis.  This individual must have ample experience in
molecular techniques.  Applicants should send a CV and 3 letters of
recommendation to Dr. Alan Jones, Dept Biology, CB# 3280, University
of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC 27599.   Direct inquiries to
