Profile

Project title: Protein sorting and thylakoid membrane biogenesis in cyanobacteria: role of mRNA localisation

Summary: Despite the deep knowledge of the thylakoid membranes in cyanobacteria at the structure level, the membrane biogenesis and processes of protein translocation are still poorly understood. We will search for signals related to the processes at the mRNA level and try to determine the factors that direct some proteins to the specific sites where they function (the thylakoid membranes or the plasma membranes).
