Division of Integrated Life Science

Laboratory of Plant Chemical Biology

Research summary

Research outline

Plant growth has been administrated by cooperative regulations between plant cell differentiation/division/elongation and photosynthesis. Based on these scientific aspects, our laboratory is trying to reveal the plant growth mechanisms by ‘chemical biology’ and ‘molecular and cellular biology’.

Main themes

  • Growth regulation by plant hormone signaling
  • Chloroplast regulation by prassinosteroid
  • Chemical functions to regulate plant growth and differentiation
  • Plant biomass production regulated by chemicals and genes
  • Protein function to regulate plant growth mechanism by structural biology
