Outline Activities
Lectures on the regulatory mechanisms of proteins in living organisms to students of the Graduate School of Systems Life Sciences. I mainly use budding yeast, Escherichia coli, and archaea as experimental organisms, using for the genetic analyses and the preparation of proteins. The aim of my study, the elucidation of the functions of the proteins in vivo and their regulatory mechanisms by combination of mutagenesis, biolchemical and structural analyses.
Research Interests
  • Elucidation of the reaction mechanisms in glycosyltransferases
    keyword : Biochemistry Structural biology Glycosyltransferase
