New paper published in JCB

May 18, 2023

Part of Tino's postdoctoral work at Caltech just got published. Sorting of membrane proteins to their correct subcellular compartment is an essential process that shapes organelle identity by equipping them with a defined inventory of proteins. We reveal a new mechanism for how selectivity of the insertion machinery at the ER membrane influences the fidelity of sorting ER and mitochondrial membrane proteins.

Time to move

May 04, 2023

Tino's last day at Caltech was an emotional one! So many memories and so much fun. But now it's time to pack up plasmids, cell lines and proteins and move them to Stanford! Very excited to get the lab started!

Preprint alert !

Mar 10, 2023

Our new preprint just dropped on bioRxiv highlighting a powerful strategy to isolate  GFP- or ALFA tagged human proteins or protein complexes in high yield and under native conditions for structural and functional analysis using nanobodies!
