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 ...

Biochemistry, Campus Kulak Kortrijk
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, ...
Division of Crop Biotechnics KU Leuven
The Division of Crop Biotechnics focuses its research and education on sustainable production of agricultural and horticultural products. We employ a variety of biotechnological methodologies to perform fundamental and applied plant research. We integrate knowledge at the cellular, tissue, plant, environment and agro-systems level for both model plants and economically important crops.
Medicinal Chemistry (Rega Institute) KU Leuven
The interests of the Laboratory for Medicinal Chemistry lay in the field of peptide, nucleoside and oligonucleotide chemistry. New substances are synthesized, analyzed and evaluated for activity in vitro. In addition, molecular modeling, NMR and mass spectrometry facilities are available and these units perform supporting research.
- Development of nucleoside derivatives with antiviral (AIDS chemotherapy) and antitumoral ...
Our research is focused on understanding the mechanisms gearing protein folding and misfolding and their relation to human disease. In particular we are investigating how protein aggregation affects the cellular interactome by suppressing native interactions but also by introducing novel aggregation-specific interactions. The latter are especially relevant as they are usually associated to gain of function activities such as neurotoxicity ...
Technology and Food Science Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research
This unit comprises three research areas (Agricultural Engineering, Food Safety and Product Quality and Innovation). Technical, mathematical and IT methods support mechanization and automation in production. We study the safety (microbiological and chemical) and quality of all types of foodstuffs. We develop methods to detect GMOs and allergens and to determine authenticity. We seek new functions and valorization of food products.
