1.Streptomyces as host for heterologous protein production. It has aldready proven that Streptomyces is a good choice for heterologous protein production and can be an invaluable host for eukaryotic proteins. Some of these heterologous proteins are secreted as biologically active compounds in commercially significant yield using expression/secretion signals we have isolated (EP0851931A), they can easily be purified and have the same ...

Biocrystallography KU Leuven
The design of new potential drugs is traditionally the domain of the pharmacochemist. In the last decades Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR)-techniques are used more and more to define the 'essential' moieties of a pharmacon. A logical evolution in the search for the relation between the 3D-structure of drugs & their biological activity is the 3D-structure analysis of the biological target molecules and the receptor- ...
The unit studies the role and ecology of microbial communities and members thereof in diverse natural and man-made environments or processes to better understand and manage these processes. A major focus is on plant-microbe-insect interactions and plant-microbe interactions.

Research in the Laboratory for Thrombosis Research (Karen Vanhoorelbeke, Simon De Meyer, Hans Deckmyn) at the Kulak campus of KU Leuven focuses on the molecular mechanisms by which the hemostatic proteins von Willebrand factor (VWF) and its cleaving enzyme ADAMTS13 contribute to health and disease. We perform fundamental research to understand the role of VWF and ADAMTS13 in hemostasis, bleeding, ...
