Jinwoo Lee & Sonia Gregory Published in PLoS One

Congratulations to Jinwoo Lee and former student Sonia Gregory McIntosh on the acceptance of their paper which examines the effect of potential pH sensor mutations on the structure of the membrane/micelle bound fusion loop of Ebola virus GP2. The Roles of Histidines and Charged Residues as Potential Triggers of a Conformational Change in the Fusion […]

Congratulations Volker Kiessling, Alex Kreutzberger and Lukas Tamm – Latest paper in July’s Biophysical Journal

High Cholesterol Obviates a Prolonged Hemifusion Intermediate in Fast SNARE-Mediated Membrane Fusion. Kreutzberger AJ, Kiessling V, Tamm LK. Biophys J. 2015 Jul 21;109(2):319-29. doi: 10.1016/j.bpj.2015.06.022. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26200867) Abstract Cholesterol is essential for exocytosis in secretory cells, but the exact molecular mechanism by which it facilitates exocytosis is largely unknown. Distinguishing contributions from the lateral organization and […]

Lukas Tamm leads team with a $1.35 million grant funding research on avian flu outbreaks – Human Frontier Science Program

“Previous research has mostly focused on changes in cell attachment and genome replication that are different between avian and human flu viruses, but our working hypothesis is that bird flu is subject to vastly different temperature and environment cycles upon transmission through the fecal-oral route than human flu, which is transmitted through aerosols and lung […]
