|Welcome to The Fuchs Lab. Proteins in the
cell are subject to a wide array of chemical and enzymatic
modifications after synthesis. These modifications dictate
all aspects of protein function – from subcellular
localization to lifetime in the cell. As such,
post-translational modifications (PTMs) play crucial roles
in regulating cellular function in both normal and disease
states. In the Fuchs lab we are studying the mechanisms
through which post-translational modifications regulate
protein structure and protein function, such that we can
understand fundamental cellular processes and explain how
misregulation contributes to disease. Work in our lab is at
the interface of Chemistry, Biology, and Engineering.
