I am interested in how the cell post-transcriptionally modifies its protein expression profile in order to adapt to stress. This includes the selective translation of mRNAs encoding stress-response proteins as well as changes in mRNA degradation dynamics.
Current Research Interests
I am currently investigating how the truncated mRNA of BiP1, an ER-chaperone protein, is stabilized after loss of its polyA tail during ER stress in S. pombe.
