Gap junctions are intercellular channels established by the connexin family of proteins. Our work focuses on understand the function of connexin via the analysis of protein-interaction networks, post-translational modifications and degradation pathways.
For application in the diagnostic environment, we are also interested in the development of robust LC-MS strategies to identify signals utilized by glioma cells.
Our lab specializes in quantitative proteomics. Trainees working within our group covers a wide range of topics including food safety, protein-protein interactions, mechanisms glioma drug resistance and cell death using proteomics and metabolomics techniques.
