Metabolic profiling of developing Citrus fruits


Lab members involved in this project: Kyung Hwan Boo

Collaborators: Ed Blumwald and Udi Katz from the Department of Plant Sciences

Project Summary: Primary metabolites (e.g. sugars, organic acids, and amino acids) and secondary metabolites (e.g. volatiles, pigments, and limonoids) in Citrus juice sac cells will be compared to a proteome database developed by Udi Katz (from the Blumwald lab) to build hypotheses regarding the molecular determinants of fruit flavor development in Citrus, and the function of useful genes determined in metabolite/protein correlation will be characterized.
