Major Research Achievements
We found that plants adapt to frequent alterations between high and low temperatures by remodeling of membrane lipids and maintenance of unsaturation levels. This mechanism is distinct from that adapting to slow alterations in temperature. We found that the acyl chain lengths of phosphatidylserine lengthen during development, senescence, and stresses and that increasing length was accelerated b... More Content>>
