Synthetic Biology: New Plant Receptors to Reprogram Signaling
Plants possess many receptor-like kinases (RLKs) which specifically perceive different molecules such as phytohormones or pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs). We invented novel RLKs that perceive only synthetic ligands. This opens the door for a highly controlled activation of e.g. plant defense pathways or fruit ripening.
