The Mystery of Twin Keaps …

News & announcements

…A system where we know many of the players, but not everything is as it seems….Investigate for yourself by reading our new paper soon appearing in eLife     —– Our studies in zebrafish and mammalian cells have shed new light on how Keap1 functions. By studying the different paralogs of Keap1 in zebrafish we unearthed (…)

Shooting straight at the heart!

Minority governance!

News & announcements

By engineering and applying function-guided proximity-mapping approach, Localis-REX, we have uncovered (Zhao, Miranda, et al., PNAS) that even small fractions of endogenous proteins existing outside their canonical locale can show significantly-elevated electrophilic-metabolite sensing against the protein in its canonical locale. This minority of electrophile-sensing proteins can strongly influence activity of the bulk protein and hence (…)
