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.
We are happy to announce a new paper from our Team, focusing on two interesting proteins – human Kti12 and PSTK. Kti12 and PSTK are highly similar proteins implicated in different aspects of... READ MORE
We have a great pleasure to introduce our new Team Member – Priyanka Dahate, who joined Max Planck Research Group as a PhD student within the Implementation PhD programme in collaboration with a... READ MORE
Last November scientists from Glatt lab compiled together the latest advances on Elongator protein 3 (Elp3) and its acetyl-transferase activity. The aim of Abbassi et al.’s review was to explain more clearly the... READ MORE
