The Glaubitz Lab: Membrane Protein Research by NMR

Main header

Welcome to the Glaubitz Lab!

The Glaubitz Lab resolves the molecular mechanisms of membrane proteins. Current research focuses on 7TM receptors, novel microbial retinal proteins (KR2, PR ChR-2), ABC transporters and membrane-bound kinases. In addition, we study the effect of lipid-protein interactions and the influence of small molecules on membrane order, dynamics and polymorphism. Our methodological approach is centered around solid-state NMR, which enables working directly with proteoliposomes, and is complemented by many additional biochemical and biophysical techniques. Our work involves both high-field MAS-NMR (up to 850 MHz) as well as dynamic nuclear polarization, a novel hybrid method combining the advantages from both NMR and EPR spectroscopy, which pushes sensitivity by orders of magnitude. This website provides an introduction to our research, lists recent publications, informs about teaching activities and announces work opportunities for those interested in joining the lab. We are part of the Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the Centre for Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance (BMRZ) and the Cluster of Excellence Macromolecular Complexes (CEF).
