How calcium ions get into the cellular power stations of plants

Led by Prof. Dr. Markus Schwarzländer oft he University Münster, an inter-university team recently discovered how calcium ions find their way into the mitochondria of plant cells. The vital signalling substance is apparently involved in the regulation of the hormone jasmonic acid, which, for example, controls the sensation of touch in plants. The study has now been published in the journal „The Plant Cell“.
