AG Kanalbiochemie


The Virtual Institute for Biological Structural research (VIBS) is funded since July 2004 by the Helmholtzgemeinschaft and University Hannover to coordinate the research teams of AG Bueldt and AG Zeilinger on the examination of structure and dynamics of different ion channels. Channel proteins are recombinant produced and analyzed by optical and electrophysiological methods. Purified channel proteins from the recombinant production process are reconstituted into artificial membranes and folded into their natural envirnment. At IBI-2 (KfA Juelich) there is additionally then the possibility by a large number of biophysical methods (crystallization and x-ray) to investigate the protein structure of these ion channels.
