Research Interests
  • The aim of my study is to elucidate various biological interactions at the molecular level. The studies include (1) Bacterial toxins that cause serious disease in insects; (2) Plant bioactive secondary metabolites and/or proteins, which involved in eating habits of phytophagous insects; and (3) Physiological activities and gene response of plants caused by plant allelochemicals.
    keyword : Insect pathogenic bacteria, insecticidal toxic protein, mulberry-derived insect-resistant substances, allelochemicals, plant gravitropism inhibitors
