Warwick Medical School Inaugural Lecture Series
Professor Judith Klein
Date: 29 November 2013
Location: Medical Teaching Centre, Gibbet Hill
Time: Welcome reception starting at 11:30. The lecture will start at 12:00.
Sticking together: lipids, membrane proteins and their interactions
Membrane proteins embedded in lipid bilayers are typically encoded by some 20-30% of genomes and include many important protein families, including the largest known protein family, the G protein coupled receptors. Furthermore, many soluble proteins interact with lipids in membranes and lipid droplets
In this lecture, Professor Klein will present fundamental mechanisms of membrane protein folding, misfolding and allosteric regulation, interactions of proteins with lipids and with other proteins, including membrane proteins.
