Altering plants to make better crops, new food types, and more effective therapeutics help to address the needs of a population expected to grow to 9 billion by 2050. When modifying plants, it’s essential to understand their cellular processes at the molecular level. Take a look at how NanoTemper’s solutions improve your plant science research.

Basic plant research

Cellular processes in plant cells are regulated by intricate pathways. Here’s how NanoTemper’s tools help you understand the molecular biology of plants — growth regulation, gene regulation, and signaling pathways.

Plant vaccines and therapeutics

Bioactive ingredients with medicinal properties can be extracted from wild-type or genetically-modified plants to make drugs, vaccine antigens, or diagnostics reagents. See how NanoTemper’s technologies are applied in the development of plant-based vaccines and other therapeutics.

In my department, we use the Prometheus and Monolith from NanoTemper Technologies to characterize protein-protein, protein-metabolite and protein-DNA interactions. We work mainly with plant proteins but also with yeast and bacterial proteins. As both technologies require relatively low protein concentration, pose no restrictions on buffer conditions and they circumvent the need of protein immobilization, they are perfectly suited for our experimental needs.
