Nano-switches in the cell

Nano-switches in the cell

In a joint study conducted by Ida Suppanz and coworkers in Bettina Warscheid's lab with the group of Agnieszka Chacinska from the Centre of New Technologies in Warsaw a new mechanism was discovered that enables mitochondria with impaired redox balance to regulate the synthesis of new proteins in the cytoplasm. The results were published in the current issue of "Nature Communications".

Discovering, counting, cataloguing proteins

Discovering, counting, cataloguing proteins

Imagine a complex technical system, like a car engine. Unbelievable to have hundreds of parts you don't know the function or exact place of. Within eukaryotic cells, however, still many hundreds of proteins have unknown functions and localisation. In a study that is part of Marcel Morgenstern's PhD thesis 82 new mitochondrial proteins were discovered by quantitative mass spectrometry and biochemical methods in the eukaryotic model organism baker's yeast. For an additional 119 proteins their mitochonrial localisation had been ambiguous. Mitochondria are small organelles within the cell that have about the size of a bacterium and are known as the cell's power plant. Furthermore, they fulfill numerous vital processes and are associated with many human diseases caused by cellular defects. The study was conducted together with a team of scientists from the universities of Freiburg, Homburg, and Rehovot (Israel) and was published in the current issue of Cell Reports.

Charting organellar importomes by quantitative mass spectrometry

In a new study of the human parasite Trypanosoma brucei we define the entirety of the mitochondrial proteins imported from the cytosol. This work is part of Christian Peikert's PhD thesis and was now published in Nature Communications. The project is conducted together with the group of André Schneider from the University of Bern.
