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.
Maria Landrock joins Max Planck Research Group for 2 months to take advantage of the research experience available in our laboratory. We are also very happy to have Maria here, which help us... READ MORE
A team of scientists from the Małopolska Centre of Biotechnology (MCB) at the Jagiellonian University (Kraków, Poland) has identified a potential link between tRNA modifications and the biosynthesis of selenocysteine, the 21st naturally... READ MORE
