PhD Thesis

started in Sep 2010
Biosynthesis of phenylphenalenone-type compounds in Haemodoraceae plants and their phytopathological role in the interaction Musa-Mycosphaerella fijiensis
Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena
First Supervisor: Dr. B. Schneider
Co-Supervisor(s): Dr. A. Svatoš, Prof. Dr. G. Pohnert

Phenylphenalenones and related natural products are inducible defense metabolites of Musa plants. Their activity against herbivores and pathogens is currently under investigation. Although the fundamental biosynthetic pathway has been elucidated, carbon fluxes and its modification under challenging conditions remains to be investigated. NMR- and MS-based metabolomic and fluxomic studies of resistant and susceptible Musa plants are the subject of the project.
