Protonation Dynamics in Protein Function

SFB 1078 IGK | FU Berlin | Ulrike Alexiev, Luiz Schubert, Kalman Christer, Manal Ebrahim, Victor Manuel Loyo Cruz, Swantje Mohr, Florian Brünig

Delve deep into the fascinating processes that control proteins

All life known to us is based on the function of proteins. The complex interactions of these small “all-rounders” on the scale of nanometers still holds a lot of secrets. Biologists, chemists and physicists of the collaborative research center CRC 1078 in Berlin are keen to unravel these secrets and investigate the functioning of proteins by experimental and computational measures.

Young scientists of the integrated graduate school of the CRC 1078 work with five model proteins to identify how proton dynamics control protein function: photosystem for energy generation in plants, cytochrome c oxidase in the power plants of our cells, channelrhodopsins to generate light-induced neuronal activity and viroporins that allow viruses to invade the human body.

In this hybrid event, we present these model proteins and showcase selected experiments and techniques that make the in-visible visible.

 

PUBLIC DISCUSSION VIA LIVESTREAM AND ON-SITE AT THE BERLIN SCIENCE WEEK CAMPUS.

This event can be attended digitally via livestream or in-person with a limited on-site audience at the Museum of Natural History.

Livestream: Shortly before the event begins, the stream will be made available on this site. Add the event to your favourites and receive a reminder via email.

On-Site: If you would like to attend the event on-site, please book your spot via e-mail to: friederike.krupp@fu-berlin.de

Due to the current situation, we are required to ask for the contact information of each person entering the Museum of Natural History in accordance with the Protection Against Infection Act. We therefore require the following data from all persons who register: First name, last name, address, telephone number and email address.

On-site the protective and hygienic measures of the Museum of Natural History apply. The so-called 3G rule (for “geimpft, genesen oder getestet“, i.e. “vaccinated, recovered or tested”) will be applied: Anyone who is not fully vaccinated or is not considered recovered will be required to provide a recent negative Covid-19 test. Visiting the event is permitted with a medical face mask only.

The registration data will be stored by the organiser for the purpose of organizing the event as well as for any subsequent contact follow-up and will also be shared with the organizers of Berlin Science Week and the Museum of Natural History for this purpose.
