Abstract:
Transportation of vital materials inside the cell is happening in similar fashion to railway system. Some proteins inside the cells act and take the exact shape of rails, while others behave like the train that is carrying the cargo. Any disruption of this transportation system due to any genetic defect in these cell proteins can lead to diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s and neurological diseases. In my work in the school of medicine, University of Colorado, I study a protein called Dynein which is like a train in the cell that carries different materials. I try to know how this protein binds to other proteins in the cell, how does it interact, what kind of shape does it have and, more importantly, what’s the implication of this protein in diseases. Using the great scientific facilities in campus, I apply different techniques to study the protein particularly a technique which is very similar to MRI that we use to diagnose diseases. The technique I focus on is called NMR, in which the protein show special signal that can be converted into data to understand the protein. I have results that can help future understanding of the implication of this protein in cancer and in a disease called Spinal Muscle Atrophy.
