EMBO conference. Ubiquitin and SUMO: From molecular mechanisms to system-wide responses

Post-translational modification of proteins with ubiquitin and ubiquitin related modifiers such as SUMO is one of the most commonly used regulatory mechanisms in cells. The purpose of this conference is to accelerate education and understanding of ubiquitin, SUMO and other Ubls at molecular, cellular and organismal levels and thus facilitate discovery as well as medical […]

Nov 30th. 2016. Webinar on “Autophagic Clearance of Proteasomes via Protein Quality Control Pathways”.

Webinar of “Proteostasis webinars series” on Wednesday, 30th November 2016, 3pm GMT. Prof. Richard Vierstra presented his webinar on “Autophagic Clearance of Proteasomes via Protein Quality Control Pathways”. He described his recent findings of a mechanistically conserved proteaphagy, a new protein quality control pathway that directs the autophagic elimination of proteasomes from both the nucleus […]

PROTEIN-PROTEIN INTERACTIONS IN MEDICAL RESEARCH: YEAST TWO-HYBRID AND Co-IP/MS SYSTEMS

No protein is an island. Protein-protein interactions are intrinsic to every cellular process. Characterizing protein-protein interactions is critical to understand protein function, the biology of the cell and to be able to modulate specific cellular processes. In fact, in the past two decades protein-protein interactions have emerged as promising drug targetsm and the field is […]

Redox Regulation of Metabolic Processes

This course aims to gain an understanding of the role of reactive oxygen species in metabolism and in the regulation of pivotal metabolic processes. This course will cover these new developments in five days with different focus: general principles of redox regulation (day 1), the interaction between reactive species and metabolic processes and signalling cascades […]

New approaches to study Ub and UbL modifications

The ubiquitin field is expanding at an astounding pace, and the techniques used to interrogate it are becoming ever more sophisticated. In particular the cross-talk between ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like modification, and the emergence of ubiquitin modification by e.g. phosphorylation represent just two new areas of research that require new concepts and strategies. For scientists early […]

Zomes IX: PCI complexes and Ubiquitin defining a hub for protein homeostasis

The ZOMES meetings focus on the biology of the three “PCI” complexes, the proteasome, the COP9 signalosome, and eIF3 and on ubiquitin ligases. The study of large protein complexes -“ZOMES” – poses unique issues and difficulties, and the ZOMES meetings aim at providing a forum for discussing the connections between these complexes and central signaling […]
