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.
In frames of POB BioS Minigrants the Jagiellonian University has granted 30 000 PLN for research on interaction of prolidase with human epidermal growth factors receptors. The research will be conducted by Piotr... READ MORE
