Georg Jander Featured in The Plant Cell

Georg JanderDr. Jander’s work identifies the nonprotein amino acid N?-acetylornithine and an acetyltransferase that synthesizes it in Arabidopsis thaliana, thus revealing a new methyl jasmonate-inducible defense response. It demonstrates that the genomic resources available for Arabidopsis make it relatively easy to move from a identifying a plant metabolite to the discovery of a previously unknown enzymatic activity.
