Results about: proteins

A high resolution description of the structure and dynamics of proteins is a very useful tool to study the properties and the function of these important biomacromolecules and, most importantly, to understand how changes in sequence or environment can lead to disease.

Our research focuses on three angles of peptide and protein chemistry: the design, synthesis and structure of bioactive molecules. From a structural perspective, we apply modern NMR techniques to study complex molecular recognition processes.

LAT2 and TAT1 transporters collaborate in the renal reabsorption of neutral amino acids

The new study analyses the dysfunction of basolateral transporters through a transgenic animal model.

This study is led by Manuel Palacín from IRB Barcelona and Virgínia Nunes from IDIBELL.
