Research Summary

Plants being sessile organisms are constantly exposed to different abiotic and biotic stresses, hence they have evolved various strategies to overcome these deleterious conditions. DJ-1 superfamily proteins are found across various species, they have been identified as multi-stress responding proteins. However, role of DJ-1 family proteins in plants is still elusive. My research project is to understand the structural and functional role of DJ-1 paralogs of Arabidopsis thaliana.
