UZH Campus Botanical Garden

Plant Receptor Kinases and Related Pathways


This symposium is organized in parallel to the kick-off meeting of the SICOPID ERA-CAPS consortium on plasma membrane receptor signaling complexes. It is an excellent occasion for a symposium in one of the hottest topics in plant sciences at the moment. The presentations will be of high interest to many plant scientists in Switzerland and in neighboring countries.

09:35 Michael Hothorn, University of Geneva, CH: “Mechanistic insights into ligand recognition, receptor activation and regulation of LRR receptor kinases”
10:05 Cyril Zipfel, University of Zurich, CH: “Regulation of receptor kinase activation during immunity and beyond”
10:35 Coffee break
11:15 Ueli Grossniklaus, University of Zurich, CH: “CrRLK1L signaling during reproductive development”
11:45 Christoph Ringli, University of Zurich, CH: “LRR-extensins: more than RALF-binding proteins”
12:00 Clara Sánchez-Rodríguez, ETH Zurich, CH: “The Plant cell wall integrity signaling relies on a Golgi-localized glycosyltransferase”
