PhD Position – Proteome dynamics under mechanical stress


PhD Place – Proteome dynamics below mechanical stress

Be part of us for an thrilling PhD venture inside the DFG-funded analysis unit FOR2743 “Mechanical Stress Safety”! Mechanical stress impacts virtually each cell within the human physique, however the molecular mechanisms permitting cells to reply and adapt to those forces are nonetheless incompletely understood. In earlier work, our group on the Central Institute for Engineering, Electronics and Analytics (ZEA-3) along with the Institute of Organic Data Processing (IBI-2), have established in vitro assays for proteome evaluation after managed utility of mechanical stress. This allowed us to recognized autophagy as a significant factor in mobile adaptation. We now try to acquire a systems-level understanding of protein degradation and autophagy below mechanical stress, each in vitro in cell-based techniques in addition to in vivo in tissues of chosen fashions comparable to mice with genetically impaired capability for mechanoadaptation. Additional data on the analysis unit is obtainable at
