    POSTDOC in OPUS 18 project – Prof. Agnieszka Chacińska, PhD

    A few words about the research group:

    Laboratory of Mitochondrial Biogenesis led by Prof. Agnieszka Chacińska is a research group with an excellent publication record in molecular cell biology. We are interested in fundamental cellular mechanisms in physiology as well as in pathology and ageing. Our research is focused on mechanisms of protein import to mitochondria and on the cellular response to dysfunction of these mechanisms. We use diverse model systems such as human cells, yeast, fish Danio rerio and worm Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Project leader: Prof. Agnieszka Chacińska, PhD

    Project title: “Molecular mechanisms modulating the function of UCH-L1 deubiquitinase in human mitochondria”

    Project description: Ubiquitin Proteasome System (UPS) is involved in quality control of mitochondrial proteome. Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase isozyme L1 (UCH-L1), a part of the UPS, is associated with neurodegeneration in Parkinson and Alzheimer diseases, which also share an involvement of mitochondria in their etiology. The aim of this project is to explore molecular mechanisms of UCH-L1 function as well as its implication in the mitochondria linked neurodegeneration.
