Dynamics of model and biological membranes

Printer-friendly version

Four principal topics concerning structural and functional aspects during the interaction of peptides and proteins with membranes are studied.

 

1. Peptide interaction with biological and model membranes including Anti Microbial Peptides (AMP), Cell        Penetrating Peptides (CPP) and viral peptides.

2. Analysis of the internalization mechanisms of CPP in cells.

3. Model membrane, membrane lipid heterogeneity and perturbation by peptides.

4. Interaction of the phospholipid-binding protein Annexin 2 with biological and model membranes.

 

The experimental approaches used in our team belong to the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics and cell biology.
