HRP SU23-8: Research Opportunity with Dr. Steven Chou
This Health Research Program opportunity is with Dr. Steven Chou, Department of Molecular Biology and Biophysics.
Project Description: Using the red blood cell cytoskeleton to probe the structural basis of actin polymerization by formins. Aim 1. Isolation of the short actin filaments in human red blood cells. Aim 2. Architecture of short actin filaments alone. Aim 3. Association of FH2 domains to the short actin filaments. Aim 4. Structural basis of actin nucleation and polymerization by different FH2 domains. Aim 5. Inhibition of pathological Formin-mediated actin polymerization.
