Decoding lineage emergence in the lateral plate mesoderm

CMCB Green Seminar

Date:22.10.2018, 14:00 - 15:00
Speaker: Christian Mosimann, University of Zurich, Institute of Molecular Life Sciences
Location: CRTD, auditorium left
Host: Dr. Nikolay Ninov

Abstract
Cell fate control from multipotent progenitor cells of key importance to understanding organ formation, origins of congenital defects, and regeneration. We study the emergence of cardiovascular cell fates within the context of mesoderm patterning with cellular, molecular, and evolutionary approaches using zebrafish as principal model. We have uncovered gene-regulatory elements that reveal the developmental stages from earliest cardiovascular prongenitor formation to subsequent organ patterning. Decoding the upstream input for these regulatory elements, we uncovered an ancient molecular program that drives the formation of cardiovascular-competent mesoderm. Our approaches further instruct the discovery and mechanistic follow-up of genotype-phenotype associations in congential cardiovascular diseases.

Evolution of transcription factor networks in primate brains

CMCB Green Seminar

Date:24.10.2018, 11:00 - 12:00
Speaker: Katja Nowick, Freie Universität Berlin
Location: CRTD, auditorium left
Host: Dr. Volker Busskamp

Abstract
Our group studies the evolution of primates. We are interested in the molecular forces that shape phenotypic differences between primate species. I am most fascinated by the differences in brain size and cognitive abilities. Our main focus is on the impact of Gene regulatory factors, such as transcription factors and non-coding RNAs, on differences in transcriptomes, gene regulatory networks, and ultimately the phenotype. We use computational and wet-lab methods to understand the evolution of human specific phenotypes.

Single-Molecule Spectroscopy of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins and Their Interaction Mechanisms

CMCB Green Seminar

Date:25.10.2018, 16:00 - 17:00
Speaker: Ben Schuler, University of Zurich, Institute of Biochemistry
Location: CRTD, auditorium left
Host: Michael Schlierf / James Saenz

Abstract
The functions of proteins have traditionally been linked to their well-defined three-dimensional, folded structures. It is becoming increasingly clear, however, that many proteins perform essential functions without being folded. Single-molecule spectroscopy provides new opportunities for investigating the structure, dynamics, and interaction mechanisms of such unfolded or 'intrinsically disordered' proteins (IDPs). I will focus on a recent example of two IDPs that bind one another with very high affinity yet remain unstructured. This type of interaction has interesting ramifications for kinetic mechanisms of binding and cellular regulation.
