Every biological process is regulated by several different control mechanisms. Our research focuses on how the individual mechanisms work and how they are coordinated with each other. We are studying the regulation of the glyoxylate bypass in the bacterium Escherichia coli.
Our laboratory is interested in characterizing the alterations in metabolism that define diseases such as fatty liver disease and Type 2 Diabetes. A a major emphasis is on lipid droplet biology and how lipid droplet proteins regulate metabolism and cell signaling. For more information
Our research focuses on the hormone/parascrine natriuretic peptide family and their cognate guanylyl cyclase (GC)-A and GC-B receptors. These signaling pathways regulate blood pressure, bone growth, reproduction, metabolism and other functions.
