Participant 9: Charite University Medicine Berlin (CHAR)

Institute of Physiology, Germany
Prof. dr. Robert Preissner

The main task of the group will be the investigation and analysis of the proteins of the synaptic proteome and the prediction of protein-protein interactions derived from conserved protein domain contacts. Putative binding sites will be further validated experimentally by the design of non-linear peptide libraries representing the interacting sites followed by the synthesis and screening of peptide microarrays. Furthermore, the experience in the design of peptidomimetics will be applied to interfere with specific protein-protein interaction or to disturb the complex formation of proteins.
