BN Seminar Gunnar van Heijne (Stockholm Univ.): "Forces acting on nascent polypeptide chains during co-translational protein translocation and folding"

Date:

Time:

16.00hrs

Location:

Room F, Delft

 

Abstract

We are using SecM-derived translational arrest peptides to measure forces acting on the nascent chain during co-translational protein translocation and folding in vivo. The technique makes possible detailed studies of translocation and folding of both membrane proteins, secretory proteins, and cytoplasmic proteins.
