Membrane Enzymology

Membrane Enzymology

Biochemistry Department, University of Groningen

The Membrane Enzymology group focuses on the molecular mechanisms of transport across biological membranes and the biogenesis of membrane (transport) proteins. In other words: How do molecules permeate biological membranes, how and where are the transport proteins synthesized and how do they travel to specific locations? We develop and use state-of-the-art approaches to probe the activity, position and traffic of individual molecules in the cell, and we combine the ‘ensemble’ enzymology and X-ray crystallography studies with (single-molecule) microscopy to yield mechanistic insight in membrane transport.
