Lucie Brejšková Ph.D.

Major Research Topic:

I work on transformations of moss Physcomitrella patens producing knock-outs in selected exocyst subunits. I characterized outcoming mutant strains genetically, biochemically and immunologically. Recently I've started to work with another evolutionary interesting model Marchantia polymorpha


Michal Hála Ph.D.

Major Research Topic:

In my profesional work I deal with a role of small GTPases and their regulatory proteins. Small GTPases are proteins which have approximately 300 aminoacids and are involved also in regulation of vesicular traficking. Specialy I work on two regulatory proteins of small GTPases: GAP (GTPase activating protein) and RABGGT (RAB geranyl-geranyl transferase). 

"No offence please but personaly I consider plants more interesting organisms in comparison with others."

Jiří Luštinec, Doc. RNDr. CSc.

Scenior scientist and emeritus professor at the Institute of Experimental Botany / Plant Molecular BiologyCSAV. Head of the research group. 1963 – 1967 employed as an expert of International Atomic Energy Agency (Cambodia, Bangladesh). 2001 – 2007 head of the Department of Plant Physiology (now Experimental Plant Biology).  


Tamara Pečenková Ph.D.


Major Research Topic:

a role for the vesicle tethering complex exocyst in biotic stress of plants and unconventional secretion pathway


Přemysl Pejchar PhD.

Major Research Topic:

phospholipid signalling in plant development and stress responses


Peter Sabol PhD.

Major Research Topic:

Exocyst role in plant immunity and callose synthases regulation

Antonietta Saccomanno

Major Research Topic:

The role of exocyst subunits phosphorylation.


Hana Soukupová Ph.D.

Major Research Topic:

genetical analyses of mutants in components of secretory pathway
I am interested in genetics of Arabidopsis mutants with impaired functions of proteins participating in vesicle transport processes, mainly in respect to interactors of small GTPases. 

If it is necessary I sing to plants.
