The Gu lab studies how plants regulate immune and stress responses at the nuclear boundary. We have emphasized on investigating the functional importance of nuclear membrane proteins in immune/stress signal perception, transduction, and execution. We also explore the specialization of different nuclear transport receptors in mediating nuclear shuttling of signaling cargos under various environmental conditions and its significance in determining specific stress responses in plant cells.
