Following up on the initial analysis of signaling cascades based on phytohormones and reactive oxygen species we now aim to use a combination of proteomics, metabolomics and imaging techniques to understand the mode of action of the signaling mechanisms involved. Below is an example illustrating how we use a combination of markers to understand the cellular processes taking place during exposure to cell wall damage in Arabidopsis seedling roots.
