A Ph.D position is available in our laboratory (DEPARTMENT OF MEDICAL
BIOCHEMISTRY, UNIVERSITY OF GENEVA).The current ongoing research
Genetic and biochemical studies related to in vivo disulfide bond
formation in the periplasm of E.coli.
Identification and charactreization of different catalysts and
chaperones in protein folding.
2. Heat shock regulation mediated by sigmaE(24) in E.coli.
This subject deals with studies related to regulation of this sigma
factor by itself and by different stesses. We are also characterizing
different genes transcribed by this sigma factor and addressing
questions like if they are involved in protein folding per se or are
involved in signal transduction of misfolding of proteins.
3. Signalling pathways of inducing heat shock response.
We have identified certain new phospho-protein phosphatases which are
involved in this signal transduction.
