supramolecular architecture and drug discovery
The Chemical Biology group is a research group within the department of Biomedical Engineering. The group is supervized by Prof.dr.ir. Luc Brunsveld.
In this group, research deals with chemical biology approaches to study protein-protein interactions. The two general lines that are being followed are supramolecular architecture and drug discovery.
Supramolecular chemistry deals with molecular architectures that are assembled by the reversible interaction of two or more chemical species…
Nuclear Receptor-Cofactor Interaction
Nuclear receptors (NRs) are multi-domain ligand-modulated transcription factors that act by targeting chromatin-modifying complexes and the…
14-3-3 Protein-Protein Interactions
In comparison to the size of the human proteome (~25,000), the estimated numbers of PPIs in the human interactome (650,000) is much larger…
