University of Rouen, Glyco-MEV laboratory (Glycobiologie et Matrice Extracellulaire Végétale)

Research projects in the laboratory Glycobiologie et Matrice Extracellulaire Végétale aim at elucidating the function and biosynthesis of glycoproteins and polysaccharides in higher plants and microalgae. We focus mainly, through reverse genetic approaches, on the function of polysaccharides in relation with plant development and morphogenesis. Another aspect of our research activity deals with defense mechanisms occurring specifically in root border cells with the ultimate goal of identifying novel molecules able to stimulate the plant immunity against pathogens. Finally, we also investigate the protein glycosylation processing in higher plants and microalgae by studying N-glycan pathways, glycosyltransferase activities and their Golgi localisation. Since plants and microalgae synthesize N-glycans that are immunogenic in humans, the aim of this topic is to engineer the endogenous processing to produce in glycoproteins carrying human-compatible glycosylation patterns. *
