Ratiometric imaging of the cell wall pH of an Arabidopsis trichome. By Firas Bou Daher

Ratiometric imaging of the cell wall pH of an Arabidopsis trichome. A dual green and red marker targeting the apoplast is used as an indicator for wall acidity. More green fluorescence indicates more alkaline areas whereas more red fluorescence coincides with zones of lower pH. This micrograph is a maximum projection of 934 images made using a Leica SP8 confocal microscope.

HFSP funding to investigate cellular growth and stresses in plants

Apr 11, 2018

SLCU's Professor Henrik Jönsson is part of an international collaboration that has received funding from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) to develop the first integrated model in plants investigating the effects from cellular growth and stresses on nuclear shape and genetic activity.

Research shows first land plants were parasitised by microbes

Apr 03, 2018

Sainsbury Laboratory researchers have found that the relationship between plants and filamentous microbes not only dates back millions of years, but that modern plants have maintained this ancient mechanism to accommodate and respond to microbial invaders.

Rare mineral discovered in plants for first time

Mar 05, 2018

A rare mineral that holds enticing potential as a new material for industrial and medical applications has been discovered on alpine plants through a collaboration between Sainsbury Laboratory and Cambridge University Botanic Garden.

Plants feel the heat

Feb 13, 2018

Sainsbury Laboratory scientists have solved a 79-year-old mystery by discovering how plants vary their response to heat stress depending on the time of day.

Fast-talking plants increase flower production within 24-hours of soil nutrient application

Jan 24, 2018

The molecular mechanisms enabling plants to quickly adapt their rate of flower production in response to changing nutrient levels in soil have been revealed by researchers at the Sainsbury Laboratory at the University of Cambridge.
