Research interests

  • Plant cell wall proteomics.
  • Posttranscriptional modifications of proteins caused by nitric oxide (especially S-nitrosylation and nitration).
  • Influence of nitric oxide on plant cell wall - plasma membrane - cytoskeleton (WMC) continuum.
  • Woody plant proteomics.
  • Analysis, at the molecular level, the impact of mycorrhizae on poplar (Populus x canescens) microcuttings growing in the presence of lead. We analyze, in particular, proteomic changes and changes in the profiles of phenolic compounds in order to determine biomarkers of tolerance. 


Current projects

  • Phytoremediation of contaminated soil (including industrial wastewater and heavy metals contamination).
  • Poplar proteomics.
  • Analysis of the impact of ectomycorrhizal fungi on the tolerance of poplar to the lead - the proteomic and metabolomic approach.
