104557 Function of Molecular Machines

winter semester 2016/2017 | Last update: 03.11.2016 Place course on memo list
Function of Molecular Machines
UE 3

To design experimental approaches to address the function of molecular machines in vivo and in vitro.


Based on available structural information we will test the function of molecular machines in vivo and in vitro: We will display crystal structure and design site specific amino-acid changes; introduce these mutations using ‘inverse PCR’ and sub-cloning; functional assay in vivo using complementation analysis; Subcellular fractionation and Western-blot analysis; live cell fluorescence microscopy; recombinant gene-expression of a molecular machine in E.coli, affinity purification and in vitro assays to demonstrate the activity of the purified machine.
