August 15, 2007: Welcome to the new Sze Lab website! We have introduced a new, user-friendly navigation system and an updated look. Please browse through the pages; and don't hesitate to contact the lab if you have trouble finding anything.

May, 2007: Our paper entitled "Participation of an Endomembrane Cation/H+ Exchanger AtCHX20 in Osmoregulation of Guard Cells" was accepted by Plant Physiology for publication. Click here for the Plant Physiology full-text link.

January 18, 2007: Under the Arabidopsis 2010 section, a page was added with our lab's list of 2010 genes and deliverables for the project.

December 21, 2006: Sze lab picture from Dr. Xiyan Li's graduation ceremony added to the "People" page.

Sze lab participates in the Arabidopsis thaliana Research Initiative at the University of Maryland (ATRIUM), which consists of a group of interactive research labs working with the model plant Arabidopsis at the University of Maryland, College Park, as well as nearby University of Maryland, Baltimore County and Howard University. ATRIUM holds a monthly meeting at UMCP and an annual Minisympoisum on Plant Biology for the mid-Atlantic region.

Research Projects

Arabidopsis 2010

The goal of the 2010 project is to determine the functions of all genes in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana by the year 2010. [ MORE ]
Cation/H+ Exchanger (CHX) Family

Inventory of All At Transporters

At Transporters in Pollen

We have integrated membrane transport with male gametophyte development and function through transcriptomics. This page will serve as a resource for revised annotations and updated microarray data sets for all Arabidopsis transporters. [ MORE ]

Vacuolar H+-ATPases

AtVHA Model

We have identified 26 genes encoding subunits of the V-ATPase in the A. thaliana genome ... [ MORE ]

Calcium Pumps

The spatial and temporal dynamics of intracellular Ca2+ in response to envrionmental and hormonal cues underscore the importance of Ca2+ transport during plant growth and development. Multiple genes in the Arabidopsis genome are predicted to encode Ca2+-transporters ... [ MORE ]
