Current Research Interests
First interest- 14-3-3 and stress biology. 14-3-3 is a scaffold protein that can bind phsophorylated proteins mostly with Mode I (K/R XX S/T X P) or Mode II (K/R XX S/T X P) binding motif. Previous studies found 12 expressed 14-3-3 isoforms in Arabidopsis. These proteins are important in the regulation of stress responses in plant cells. In a proteomic analysis more than a hundred 14-3-3 interacting proteins were identified in Arabidopsis in vivo by use of tandem affinity purification (TAP)-tag affinity purification and 2D-LC/MS/MS. These 14-3-3 interacting partners can be potential phosphoproteins, which include transcription factors, translation factors, membrane receptors etc. Our lab will continue to use this system biology approach to identify more proteins using Arabidopsis as a model system. The role of 14-3-3 protein in the regulation of phosphorylation-dependent binding under stress condition is the major focus in our lab.

Second interest- Biochemistry of CDPK. Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) genome encodes 34 calcium-dependent protein kinases (CDPKs) and eight CDPK-related kinases (CRKs). These protein kinases phosphorylate different substrates in plant cells. We identified phosphorylation sites of putative substrates phosphorylated by CDPK by use of mass spectrometry and neutral loss method. Our lab will continue to characterize the functionality of the phosphorylation of CDPK substrate in vivo.
