The project entitled “The Role of AtSUT2, AtSUT3 and AtSUT4, encoding sucrose transporter on the ROS-related Redox Regulation and Signaling of Arabidopsis thaliana under Different Abiotic Stress Conditions”, whose coordinator is Assoc. Prof. Dr. Aşkım Hediye Çetinel in Department of Biology, Faculty of Science and Ege University, has become entitled to support within the scope of the 1001 project by TUBİTAK.

In this project, the role of Sucrose Transporters (SUT), performing of functions and distribution of Sucrose which is the most abundant form of sugar in plants, on the ROS-related redox regulation and signaling in the leaves and roots of Arabidopsis thaliana under extreme conditions such as salinity, high temperature and drought will be investigated at the biochemical and molecular levels. Moreover, potential new functions of SUTs, which are very effective on plant growth and yield, in abiotic stress tolerance of plants will be determined for the first time.
