Defining the genetic link between nitrate and ammonium transport proteins and root architecture in Maize and Barley

We have previously tested two contrasting maize inbred lines on their inherent nitrate transport rates and respective responses to growth at low nitrogen supply. The lines were sele more...

A Novel Role in Stabilizing Vulnerable Atherosclerotic Plaque

Atherosclerosis is the leading cause of cardiovascular deaths, accounting for ~30% of all deaths in Australia in 2018. Atherosclerotic plaque rupture leads to heart failure and stro more...

Define regulatory control pathways delivering NPF (nitrate) and AMT (ammonium) transport activities across root types and cell profiles

We have previously identified the tissue expression patterns of ZmNPF6;6 and ZmNPF6;4 in maize root tips (Wen, Z., et al., The Plant Cell, 2017) and used qPCR as well as custom arra more...

A structural view and understanding of NPF (nitrate transport) protein activity in maize

This PhD project will develop and analyse high quality crystallised proteins of the nitrate/chloride transport proteins ZmNPF6;4, ZmNPF6;4 (Y370H) and ZmNPF6;6. The goal will be to more...

Modulating coronary atherosclerosis through perivascular fat (PVAT)

Background: Organ-to-organ communications are vital for living systems and play critical roles in cellular homeostasis. Various studies have demonstrated the existence and significa more...
