I don't know the specifics of your example.
Something like the following might help:

Plot[funct,  {x, xmin, xmax}, ticks->{{10^3, Superscript[10,3]}, {10^6, 
Superscript[10,6]}, {10^9, Superscript[10,9]}} ]

Once you figured out exactly how to get the results you want you can program 
you own Plot command.
