Description of research in the Mahalakshmi laboratory: We are discovering the link between membrane protein folding, protein stability and function, and its connection to neurodegenerative diseases. Our focus system is the human mitochondrial outer membrane proteins. We combine modern ultrafast kinetics and equilibrium spectroscopic measurements with state-of-the-art electrophysiology measurements and cell survival assays to obtain a complete understanding of membrane protein folding, function, regulation, and the occurrence of neurodegeneration.
