Charlotte Cooper published paper
Recent MIBTP graduate Charlotte Cooper published a paper on her PhD research; MadR mediates acyl CoA-dependent regulation of mycolic acid desaturation in mycobacteria’ in PNAS (https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.2111059119). The work has implications for understanding the strategies of cell wall remodelling for pathogenesis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and response to stress in mycobacteria across various environments ranging from soil to an intracellular niche in infected macrophages.
Kish Adoni first paper
Birmingham MIBTP student Kish Adoni has published a paper.
We have developed a new proteomics method that enriches for multiple PTM containing peptides by 6-fold using FAIMS ion mobility. Excitingly, ~40% of our multi-PTM identifications have not previously been reported.
