Title: Intercellular communication in filamentous cyanobacteria

Abstract:
Filamentous, heterocyst-forming cyanobacteria are multicellular prokaryotes in which different cell types must communicate and co-operate.  In particular, heterocysts and vegetative cells must exchange signals and metabolites.  We have used a technique involving fluorescent tracer dyes, confocal microscopy and Fluorescence Recovery after Photobleaching to demonstrate that there are channels allowing the rapid, non-selective of diffusion of small molecules from cell to cell in the filament.  These channels are probably the "microplasmodesmata":tiny protein structures observed long ago in electron micrographs that appear to link the cytoplasms of adjacent cells.  We have identified a protein known as FraG as the key component of the channels. The activity of the channels is strongly regulated, and this regulation sheds new light on the relationship between the different cells in the filament

Wed. 28 Oct, 2009

Visit to UPSC by two professors from the University of Agricultural Sciences, Gandhi Krishi Vignyan Kendra GKVK, Bangalore, India.

Wed. 28 Oct, 2009 7:00 - Fri. 30 Oct, 2009 7:00

The University of Agricultural Sciences (UAS), GKVK, in Bangalore is a distinguished University in its field. In an on-going effort to recruit students from abroad to UPSC and in order for foreign students to get well trained in state-of-the art plant biology, UPSC and three Departments from UAS have started discussion within a grant from the Linneus-Palme exchange program to establish future collaborations. Within this program, two professors and Head of Departments from UAS, will visit UPSC October 28 - 30 to start the discussion about a possible future collaboration.

 

They will give lectures about their University and activities at their Departments at UAS Wednesday October 28, between 9 -12, in KB4C10.
