Cell Biology Group

The Cell Biology Group conducts several ongoing research projects within the Laboratory of Respiratory Biology. For more information, please see the following links to individual project webpages.

  • GLI-Similar (GLIS) is a subfamily of Krüppel-like zinc finger proteins that plays a role in several illnesses such as diabetes, glaucoma and kidney disease.

  • Nuclear Receptor Signaling involves the study of the retinoic acid-related orphan receptors (ROR α-ϒ or NR1F1-3) and the orphan receptor TAK1 (TR4 or NR2C2).

  • Ubiquitin-Containing RAP80 is a receptor-associated protein that is involved in important cellular roles such as endocytosis, DNA repair and replication.
