  • Introduction
    fully sequenced genomes and the development of high throughput functional genomics technologies we now have the tools to look at the molecular biology of an organism from a systemic viewpoint Systems biology is a dynamic and highly interdisciplinary field requiring input from biology as well as engineering physics and mathematics One of our main interests is the development of methods to analyze functional genomics data and integrate them in models that reflect the regulatory wiring and modularity of biological systems and ultimately predict their behavior We are also developing user friendly computational tools to assist wet lab researchers in the interpretation of large scale datasets and biological networks Projects Steven Maere ESB Website Group Members Publications Steven Maere Research Groups Alain Goossens Lab Ann Depicker Lab Bruno Cammue Lab Daniel Van Damme Lab Dirk Inzé Lab Frank Van Breusegem Lab Geert De Jaeger Lab Ive De Smet Lab Jenny Russinova Lab Lieven De Veylder Lab Mieke Van Lijsebettens Lab Moritz Nowack Lab Sofie Goormachtig Lab Steven Maere Lab Tom Beeckman Lab Yves Van de Peer Lab Wout Boerjan Lab About PSB PSB Missions The Department Infrastructure Core Facilities International Projects Publications News Seminars Research Groups Alain Goossens Lab Ann Depicker

  • Introduction
    Understanding how root systems develop is crucial for maximizing crop production in a world in which the population is increasing and the amount of arable land is decreasing Lateral root formation or root branching is one of the major regulators of root system architecture During root branching developmental and environmental controls of cell cycle regulation are crucial Mitotic activity must be renewed in differentiated pericycle cells that have left the cell cycle In Arabidopsis the lateral roots are initiated by local activation of the pericycle cells at the xylem poles Dhooge et al 1999 Earlier a model describing the cell cycle progression preceding the first formative divisions for lateral root initiation was proposed by members of our group Beeckman et al 2001 Unique cell cycle control dissimilar from that in other pericycle cells was shown to take place in the xylem pericycle Good knowledge of this tissue specific cell cycle regulation is therefore needed for a better understanding of lateral root initiation To efficiently study the molecular and cytological events during the early stages of pericycle activation a lateral root inducible system was developed Successive treatments with an auxin transport inhibitor and exogenous auxin were used to prevent the first formative divisions and to activate the whole pericycle respectively The morphological and molecular results show that in this inducible system pericycle activation corresponds to that of spontaneous lateral root initiation but is enhanced and covers the whole length of the xylem pericycle In this system cell cycle progression during the early course of lateral root induction was monitored using histochemical and molecular techniques The results demonstrated that CDK inhibitory proteins KRPs play a previously unknown role in specifically preventing lateral root initiation at the G1 to S transition Himanen et al in preparation In addition the analysis of auxin distribution
