Studies on the mechanism of transmembrane signal transduction mediated by heterotrimeric G-proteins, which are responsible for the transmission of information about extracellular messangers.

Office: Schwitalla Hall 099

Research Interests

We are interested in the universal mechanism of transmembrane signal transduction mediated by heterotrimeric G-proteins, which are responsible for the transmission of information about extracellular messengers such as hormones, neurotransmitters and sensory stimuli, including visual signals.
