Welcome to our lab homepage!


Focus of our independent junior research group at the Leibniz Institute for Plant Biochemistry (IPB) at Halle is the biological relevance and molecular function of a highly specialized protein modification pathway called the N-end rule. 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.




BREAKING NEWS (April 28, 2017):

Nature Communications paper on the 'missing link' between oxygen sensing and protein degradation in plant hypoxia response featured at Plantae’s “What We’re Reading This Week“

selected by The Plant Cell, American Society of Plant Biologists and The Global Plant Council.
