“Microbiology” meeting in Dresden

B André was invited to give a conference entitled “Diversity and regulation of amino acid transporters in Saccharomyces cerevisiae “at the first plenary sessions of the “Microbiology and Hygiene meeting” organized in Dresden (Germany) (Oct 5-8).

 

“Substrate-induced endocytosis of amino acid permeases” published in Mol Cell Biol

 

Our last paper entitled “Substrate-induced ubiquitylation and endocytosis of yeast amino acid permeases” has been accepted for publication in the journal Molecular and Cellular Biology. This work, carried out in collaboration with Martine Prévost and Eva Krammer (ULB), reports that substrate binding to the yeast amino acid transporters Gap1 and Can1 triggers a conformational change […]

Christos Gournas obtained an FNRS postdoc grant for joining the lab

 

We are very glad to welcome Dr Christos Gournas as a new FNRS postdoc in the lab. Christos obtained his PhD in 2012 after a research in the excellent lab of Pr. George Diallinas (University of Athens, Greece). Among other contributions he reported one of the clearest case of substrate-induced endocytosis of a […]
