Welcome to our lab homepage!


Focus of research at the Chair of Plant Physiology at the University of Osnabrück is the biological relevance and molecular function of a highly specialized protein modification pathway called the N-degron pathway. It is part of the Ubiquitin proteasome system and can lead to rapid degradation of target proteins from the living cell and by this abolishing the same time. This indicates an important function in protein quality control, protein homeostasis, and general development throughout the kingdoms of life.


To get an idea of current interests of our Department of Plant Physiology, see the latest review in Annual Reviews of Plant Biology, which is available open access.



NEWS from our lab at Halle and Osnabrück





Together with Yong Tae Kwon (Seoul), Anna Kashina (Pittsburgh), and Hyun Kyu Song (Seoul),

we co-organized Protein Termini 2019, the 1st annual meeting of the International Society of Protein Termini (ISPT)“ in

Seoul, Republic of Korea from October 3 to 5, 2019











Find out about our work from current press coverages e.g. at the Global Plant Council and at Pflanzenforschung.de

We are part of the ScienceCampus Halle - Plant-based Bioeconomy and until 2018 participant of the European COST Action BM1307 on intracellular proteolysis pathways in health and disease (PROTEOSTASIS).

The lab will move from Halle to the University of Osnabrück during the next couple of months.
