focusing on signal transduction pathways for regulation of the Proteasome and the mitochondrial Lon protease in oxidative stress.
Protease subunits and regulators are differentially expressed and exhibit differential binding/activities during stress. The Davies lab. is studying the mechanisms by which protein turnover and stress resistance are regulated during reversible adaptation.
Graduating Ph.D. students or recent Ph.D.’s with skills in biochemical methods and molecular biology techniques are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should contact Kelvin Davies directly by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
