Structural, functional and regulatory plasticity of giant metabolic enzymes (LIPOFLUXCONTROL) Ghent University
Organisms across all kingdoms of life crucially rely on the high-energy metabolite acetyl-CoA in the cellular cytosol to fuel
pivotal biochemical processes such as fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, and protein acetylation. However, the metabolic
availability of acetyl-CoA is by no means a sinecure. Acting as a metabolic hub, ATP citrate lyase (ACL) harnesses the
hydrolysis of ATP and metabolically generated citrate and ...
Function and post-translational regulation of the PP2A methylesterase PME-1 in the cellular response to stress conditions KU Leuven
Cells have developed diverse mechanisms to protect themselves from acute damage by environmental stresses, such as nutrient or growth factor deprivation, oxidative stress and DNAdamage. In all these responses, stress-regulated protein kinases and phosphatases are commonly involved. Protein Phosphatase 2A (PP2A) is a major cellular phosphatase with pleiotropic functions, including in stress signaling. Here, we aim to investigate how cellular ...
New sensors and strategies for the visualization of nanoscale activity and 3D cell structure KU Leuven
Living systems use nanoscale organization to compartmentalize and guide the chemical processes occurring inside them. This spatiotemporal heterogeneity is thought to be a key concept for e.g. signaling specificity, yet is difficult to study as it can only be measured in the intact cell. However, at the current state of the art it is difficult to measure chemical (signaling) processes at high spatiotemporal resolution, or to measure whole-cell ...
Plants suffer from all kinds of biotic and abiotic stress conditions, which are often regulated by the plant hormone ethylene. One of the most enigmatic abiotic stress responses is epinasty, which is the downwards bending of the leaves. Leaf epinasty is observed in many important crops including tomato, and is often the result of root hypoxia and/or salinity stress. Our preliminary results have showed that epinasty is developmentally ...
