The research of the laboratory focuses on structure, function and interactions of biological macromolecules, mainly proteins, as well as on development of NMR methodology.

Recent structure: EspFU


insulin receptor tyrosine kinase substrate (IRTKS) SH3 domain in complex with a repeat from Escherichia coli-secreted protein F-like protein encoded on prophage U (EspFU), a translocated effector of enterohemorrhagic E. coli that commandeers the mammalian actin assembly machinery.

Recent structure: MANF


Mesencephalic astrocyte-derived neurotrophic factor (MANF) protects neurons and repairs the Parkinson disease-like symptoms in a rat 6-hydroxydopamine model.
