Nitrogen is an essential macronutrient for plant development and productivity. The adaptive response to nitrogen availability in the soil is crucial for the immobile plant. Nitrate is not only the primary nitrogen source in temperate climate, but also an important signal molecule. Our studies focus on nitrate uptake and on the regulatory network governed by nitrate using molecular, physiological and genetic approaches. Major emphasis are (a) the functional study of the Arabidopsis NRT2 family, which codes for putative high affinity nitrate transporters, (b) deciphering the role of Arabidopsis NIN-like protein 7 (NLP7), a member of the RWP-RK family of putative transcription factors which is involved in the adaptation to N availability and (c) understanding the genetic architecture of the response to N availability in the whole plant.
