Structures of Vac8-containing Protein Complexes Reveal the Underlying Mechanism by which Vac8 Regulates Multiple Cellular Processes
The findings of this research have been published in the April 2023 issue of PNAS.
Abstract Vac8, a yeast vacuolar protein with armadillo repeats, mediates various cellular processes by changing its binding partners; however, the mechanism by which Vac8 differentially regulates these processes remains poorly understood. V... Read More

Structural Basis for Mitoguardin-2 Mediated Lipid Transport at ER-mitochondrial Membrane Contact Sites
Their findings have been published in the June 2022 issue of Nature Communications.
Abstract The endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-mitochondria contact site (ERMCS) is crucial for exchanging biological molecules such as phospholipids and Ca2+ ions between these organelles. Mitoguardin-2 (MIGA2), a mitochondrial outer membrane pro... Read More
Their findings appear in the October issue of the scientific journal, PNAS.
A team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has identified a new intracellular trafficking pathway of phospholipids. This pathway serves as a tunnel through which lipids are transported at inter-organellar membrane contact sites (MCSs). Th... Read More
