Aktuel forskning

I am currently doing my Ph.D. within chemical and molecular plant-insect interactions. The biosynthesis of cyanogenic glucosides appears to have evolved convergently in plants and in the zygaena species as both possess enzymes which have a large sequence variation but perform identical chemical reactions in the pathway. The main goal of the project is to 1) elucidate whether the active site of the first enzyme in the pathway differs between the species. 2) Determine the residues involved in substrate binding
