brassin

[′bra·sən]
(biochemistry)
Any of a class of plant hormones characterized as long-chain fatty-acid esters; brassins act to induce both cell elongation and cell division in leaves and stems.

To achieve this I will i) decipher the influence of the extracellular matrix on stem cell activity by cell type-specific modulation of matrix integrity; ii) decode the complex role of brassinosteroid hormones by tuning their activities during stem cell initiation; iii) record cell fate signatures by high-resolution 4-D expression maps for cambium subdomains; and iv) Identify novel signalling cascades connecting the extracellular matrix with underlying cells by forward genetics.

Plant development is regulated by six types of hormones: auxin, gibberellin, cytokinin, ethylene, abscisic acid and brassinosteroid.
Because some plants we eat contain these compounds, like mustards, in the future we may be able to breed or engineer these plants for higher brassinosteroid content, thus producing functional foods that can treat or prevent diseases and increase physical performance," he stated.
