Foteini Karapanagioti is new research assistant in Nissen group

The aim of this project for Foteini Karapanagioti is to investigate the structural changes of arrhythmic calmodulin mutations and the effects on the binding to and regulation of the Plasma Membrane Ca2+ ATPase (PMCA) pump. The acquired data will give an insight on the involvement of PMCA dysregulation in the mechanism of calmodulin mutation…

Structural representation of the crystal structure of the protein kinase RSK2 (grey surface) in complex with the drug dimethyl fumarate (yellow spheres). The light blue spheres represent water molecules bound to the protein structure that are also revealed from the crystal structure. The structure was determined at 1.9 Å resolution and the atomic coordinates are available in the protein data bank with access code 5O1S: www.rcsb.org/structure/5O1S
Model of DMF inhibition. Schematic figure of the activation loop transition between inactive and activated state of the C-terminal kinase domain (consisting of the ATP binding domain and the helix bundle domain). DMF targets an allosteric site and blocks kinase activation, and vice versa. Figure: Jacob Lauwring Andersen
