The ultimate aim of our projects is to address the fundamental question of how molecular chaperones modulate protein folding in the cell. To this end, we employ a battery of approaches including biochemical, biophysical, proteomics, and bioinformatics tools. Specific projects are as follows: 1. Mechanism of function of the Hsp100 chaperone system. 2. Mechanism of function of the Hsp90 chaperone system. 3. Investigation of a new AAA+ chaperone system in E. coli. 4. Proteomic analysis of the yeast chaperone networks.
