Welcome to the Max Planck Research Group website!
Research in the Glatt lab combines structural biology (x-ray crystallography and electron microscopy), molecular biology, protein biochemistry, biophysics, and cell biology to understand specific regulatory mechanisms of protein synthesis.
We use X-ray crystallography to study how proteins interact with other molecules (i.e. tRNA) and gain detailed knowledge about macromolecular assemblies and their role in post-transcriptional regulation.
We work mainly on HEK293 cells that are our source of human tRNAs and human proteins involved in tRNA modification process. Our main techniques are transfection and lentiviral transduction to modulate levels of proteins of interest.
The annual RNA meeting is quite a magnificent meeting for the RNA people to gather around and discuss their findings. This great meeting had over 1000 participant this year and took place at... READ MORE
On 23rd and 24th of May, the whole Institute enjoyed a two-day seminar in the heart of the Tatry mountains – the town of Zakopane. About 140 participants contributed to 90 poster presentations... READ MORE
