We are looking forward to a presentation by associate professor Pete Jones, University of Otago, New Zealand, with the title:
“Post-translational regulation of RyR2”
Pete Jones principal research interest is how calcium cycling is controlled in excitable cells, including cardiac and skeletal muscle as well as neurons. Focus is on the mechanisms by which calcium release from intra-cellular stores (endo/sarcoplasmic reticulum, ER/SR) is controlled by the type 2 ryanodine receptor (RyR2).
The aim of the research is to characterize how the activity of RyR2 is altered both physiologically and in disease. This is achieved using a broad spectrum of assays from molecular biology and single channel recordings, through to isolated cells and tissue and ultimately whole animal models and patients.
See you on Zoom!
Time: 08:45 am CET (Central European Time), on Friday, 10. March.
Chair: Bill Louch
