Science for Society

Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) is big enough to offer a broad and innovative range of subjects, yet not too big to be impersonal. A university with an international reputation for excellent research, JMU is proud to be the home of outstanding researchers. But at JMU we are not only committed to delivering quality research, we are also committed to delivering quality teaching.

The Venus flytrap: The traps' insides are lined with red glands (a) that work like a plant "stomach" after a prey is caught. The glands secrete a digestive enzyme. This secretory mechanism was shown at the vesicle level in plants for the first time (b). The model illustration (c) shows that activated glands absorb calcium (Ca2+), thereby triggering the jasmonate signalling pathway and the secreting of hydrochloric acid (HCL) and digestive enzymes.

Ants rescue their injured
