The SFB 1381 investigates how different proteins are dynamically assembled into complex multimers, the so-called protein machineries, which play a central role e.g. in the energy metabolism of the cell, the replication, repair, and transcription of DNA, the folding and degradation of proteins, as well as the intra- and intercellular communication and transport processes. The focus of the SFB 1381 lies on the organization of these protein machineries in modular units, the regulation of their assembly and disassembly, and the impact of these processes on cellular functions.
The aim of the SFB 1381 is to define and understand the dynamic processes of the assembly and organization of cellular protein machineries, and to gain insight into the fundamental processes in a living cell.
This online-workshop, taking place in October, is intended to provide you with two general assays, which are useful for the study of protein-protein interactions independent of the organism or system you are working in. The lectures will furthermore cover other possible assays for the study of protein-protein interactions and discuss the advantages and disadvantages.
Chris Meisinger’s research group has discovered a signaling protein that controls the assembly of human cellular “power plants.” Corvin Walter and Adinarayana Marada (Project A6) of Meisinger’s research group developed a systematic approach to track down signaling mechanisms such as those triggered by protein kinases, in humans. The work was done in collaboration with Nora Vögtle (Project B04), Claudine Kraft (Project B10) and Tilman Brummer from the University of Freiburg as well as researchers at the Universities of Göttingen, Dortmund and Fribourg, Switzerland. Publication in Nature Communications.
There are 4 places left for the workshop “Data Analysis and Statistics using R and RStudio”.
The workshop is held online on 29th and 30th of July 2021.
We are delighted to announce our first SFB 1381 symposium ““Dynamic organization of cellular protein machineries“, which will be held from March 9-11, 2022 in Freiburg.

The SFB PI Sonja Albers (project A1) and the Young Investigator Grantee Sascha Yousefi (project YIG2) are presenting their work to the public in the frame of the Pint of Science Germany Festival. Attendance is free of charge.
On the 8th and 9th of March 2021 all SFB researchers met virtually for the annual retreat. Although we could not meet in person, the meeting was a great success.
Thanks to all participants for their excellent contributions!
Dr. Laura Gámez-Días from the Institute of Immunodeficency, University Medical Center Freiburg, and Dr. Sascha Yousefi from the Institute of Biology, University of Freiburg are the Young Investigator Grantees of the SFB 1381.
Asifa Akhtar (Project B3) received the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize 2021 by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for her outstanding work on the regulation of the genome.
