Oct. 4: Biomolecular Sciences Seminar – Dr. Fujise

October 4, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm

3:00-4:15 p.m. Multi-Purpose Building, room 106. Dr. Ken Fujise from the University of Texas Medical Branch will be presenting on targeting fortilin in human diseases. Abstract: The endoplasmic reticulum, the cytoplasmic organelle that matures a massive amount of nascent secretory polypeptides, is particularly sensitive to stress. Endoplasmic reticulum stress causes unfolded proteins to populate the organelle, eliciting the unfolded protein response. During the unfolded protein response, GRP78—an endoplasmic reticulum master stress regulator—detaches from three endoplasmic reticulum stress sensors (IRE1α, PERK, and…
