Dear netters,

I am interested in the influence of individual proteins from thylakoid proteins 
on ion and temperature induced changes in photosystem segregation and stacking. 
My interest is mainly physico-chemical and I want to use thylakoid membranes for 
studies on specific and unspecific lipid-protein and protein-protein 
interactions as well as formation of membrane domains and ion-induced 
interactions between membrane lamellae. It seems that thylakoids from the algal 
mutants are the best system which brings big amount of measurables to be 
followed by various techniques. My interest is to a big extent theoretical but I 
think that my experiments may bring new light into understanding of function of 
membrane complexes, their organisation and regulation.

I do not have any experience with work on algal membranes since so far I have 
been working with thylakoids from peas, however, I am moving soon to a lab 
specialised in algae. I also do not have the experience and manpower to do 
genetic experiments. However, I have acess to and experience with many 
spectroscopical techniques, perhaps with exception of ESR. I am also 
collaborating with group of theoreticians working on ion-membrane interactions. 

I am therefore looking for collaboration with any group which will supply me 
with algal mutants with defined modifications of thylakoid membranes. I will be 
glad to make new use of the mutants people have already in shelf. I am also 
prepared to put all my effort into any kind of joint grant proposal. 

I am looking forward for your response

Dalibor
