We seek a candidate to join MPP group in Department of Plant Pathology and
Microbiology at National Taiwan University to investigate the defensive role
of type II glycine-rich protein (GRP) in plant immunity. LsGRP1 is a plant
defense gene with an increased expression in lily leaves exhibiting
salicylic acid-induced resistance against necrotrophic fungi Botrytis
elliptica, and encodes a cell wall- and plasma membrane-located plant class
II GRP. The antimicrobial activity present in C-terminal of LsGRP1 suggests
LsGRP1 can protect lily from pathogen infection via the direct inhibitory
effect on microbes. Besides, the expression profiles of LsGRP1 and some
reports about other plant class II GRPs involved in callose deposition imply
that LsGRP1 probably mediates the activation of some defense responses of
the induced resistance. Accordingly, we try to evaluate the defense-related
function and mechanism of class II GRPs though the study of LsGRP1 from
monocot Lilium, and hope to offer background knowledge about class II GRP to
develop a novel strategy for disease control.

 

Applicants should be highly motivated, collaborative, and capable of driving
projects independently. Preferred qualifications are:  (1) Strong background
in molecular biology, phytopathology and microbiology. (2) Experiences in
gene cloning, protein analysis (such as co-immunoprecipitation, yeast-two
hybrid system, bimolecular fluorescence complementation), expression of
recombinant proteins, detection of plant defense responses, transient and
stable transformations of plants, manipulating microbes and plant materials,
etc.
