Hong Kong Univ. Sci. & Technol.
To investigate the molecular mechanisms of ABA signal transduction. We
are chromosome walking to Arabidopsis mutants that ectopically express
an ABA-inducible reporter and have pleiotropic effects on morphogenesis
(Planta 210: 875 and abstract #232,
second project involves flow cytometry, electrophysiology, and
biochemistry of rice protoplasts that express ABA-inducible GFP. We are
focusing on the role of a cell surface glycoprotein that may interact
with an ABA receptor (FEBS Lett. 456: 257), and the mechanism of action
of trivalent ions (Plant Physiol., in press). Salary is US$37,100 per
