实验室研究背景介绍

氮是农作物生长必须的营养元素。尽管空气中氮含量高达78%, 但并不能被农作物直接吸收利用;而豆科植物和作物如大豆、花生、豌豆和苜蓿等可以与根瘤菌形成共生、通过根瘤菌生物固氮的过程将氮气转化为植物可以利用的氮源。这种高效的天然固氮系统既节约能源、又保护环境,因此被认为是发展可持续性绿色农业的重要氮肥来源。而研究和解析豆科植物根瘤菌共生固氮的机制,是将其高效应用于现代绿色农业的关键基础。

实验室主要从事豆科植物-根瘤菌共生固氮机制的研究,前期在豆科植物调控根瘤菌侵染的研究中,发现豆科植物中首个调控根瘤菌侵染线极性生长的豆科植物蛋白复合体(侵染复合体,infectosome);建立豆科模式植物蒺藜苜蓿中首个根毛特异的根瘤菌侵染转录组 (root hair infectome);解析豆科植物中首个根瘤菌侵染的基因调控网络并揭示固氮共生进化中重要转录因子的核心调控作用等。主要研究成果发表于Nature Communications、The Plant Cell、The EMBO JournalMolecular Plant Plant Physiology等期刊,其中infectome系列研究成果为ESI高被引论文、侵染复合体infectosome相关发现被认为发展了研究和理解根瘤菌侵染线发育机制的新方向
