Plant uncoupling mitochondrial proteins: functional analysis employing RNA-seq and knockout mutants


The main objective of this project is to determine the whole gene expression profiles of transgenic tobacco plants overexpressing an uncoupling mitochondrial protein from Arabidopsis thaliana (AtUCP1) using RNA-Seq. Differences in the transcriptome profiles between untransformed and derived AtUCP1 transgenic lines will be evaluated. In parallel, knockout mutants for each AtUCP gene present in the Arabidopsis genome will be obtained and functionally characterized. (AU)
