Response of biological membranes to exogenous hydrophobic compounds such as the plant phytoalexins.
I study lipid bilayer membranes and biological membranes and how their composition effects their ability to fuse, to hold a proton gradient, their fluidity etc. their function. At present, my focus is on a very hydrophobic plant derived compound (dihydrowyrone) and its effects on model membranes and beet tonoplasts.
