More about this group

Work in Alistair Hetherington’s research group centres on investigating the fundamental mechanisms that allow plant cells to respond to a changing environment. More specifically the group is interested in identifying how plant cells couple the perception of extracellular stimuli to their characteristic intracellular responses. A significant part of the research in his group over the past 20 years has focussed on the role of calcium ions in this process and in particular identifying how plant cells generate the increases in intracellular calcium concentration that are key components in the process of signal transduction...
