At IBC a new EU funded Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow, Dr. Agnieszka Rawluszko-Wieczorek, investigates recognition of lysine methylation marks in proteins, which plays a critical role in cellular dynamics. However methylation of lysine residues does not massively alter their biophysical properties making its specific recognition challenging. The biological outcome of lysine methylation is mediated by reading domains which may e.g. acts as a scaffold for other proteins to induce biological response. The KMET-READ project „ Reading of lysine methylation – Mechanism, Biological function and Application” will examine ‘readers’ with unknown function as well identify new ones through innovative experiment approaches.
