The title of Anirban’s project: Dissection of Pex34, Dnm1 and Vps1 in peroxisome proliferation and fission in Saccharomyces cerevisiaeAnirban will biochemically characterize yeast proteins involved in peroxisome fission (Pex34p, Pex11p, Dnm1p, Vps1p) using established genetic and biochemical approaches. The protein composition of the complexes and transiently associated proteins will be determined by mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomics. Newly identified components will be analyzed for their localization, function and physical interactions. Anirban will look for the anchor proteins of Vps1 and epistatic analysis of Pex11, Dnm1 and Vps1 in different deletion strains. Anirban will also contribute to the identification of novel binding partners of proteins involved in in peroxisome proliferation by fission alongwith ESR2 by genetic and biochemical approaches.

Anirban will also contribute to the establishment of functional assays for peroxisome proliferation during his secondment at University of Exeter.Part of the research will be performed at the University of Exeter, Exeter
