Biochemical and cellular characterization of novel components of MCS
Membrane contact sites (MCS), where two organelles come into very close proximity without fusing, are emerging as novel structures for inter-organelle communication. These sites of intimate contact generally form between the endoplasmic reticulum and a second organelle, including mitochondria and the plasma membrane.
We are using a combination of cellular and biochemical…Continue
