Periodic Report - TA PROTEIN INSERTION (Uncovering the mammalian targeting machinery for tail anchored proteins)

Project ID: 239224
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


The EU-funded TA PROTEIN INSERTION project aimed to uncover and characterise the machinery responsible for the insertion of BCL2 and other Tail anchored (TA) proteins into mitochondrial membranes in both yeast and mammals. This discovery would serve as a tool for better understanding BCL2 functions and shed light on a fundamental part of cell biology.

This periodic activity report provides a brief overview of the project background and objectives. It also refers to the activities that were undertaken and analyses the results that were already obtained. Moreover, the fellow summarises the effect of the funding scheme on her career development. Finally, the report closes with a presentation of the expected final results and their potential impact and use.
