UQCCR Seminar Series: UBIQUITINATION IN THE REGULATION OF MEMBRANE PROTEINS - Presenter Professor Sharad Kumar
- Full Description:
- Overview: Ubiquitination is a common protein modification process that is essential for the normal functioning of the cell. This seminar will discuss how ubiquitination regulates membrane proteins, such as the signaling receptors, ions channels and transporters, and the pathophysiological consequences of such a regulatory system. Data will be presented on the role of ubiquitination in iron and salt homeostasis, and in disease. The seminar should be of interest to a wide audience in biomedical sciences, biochemistry, cell biology and physiology.
