  • role of Cullin3 for NM Our new manuscript outlines the role that Cullin3 E3-ligase function plays for the development of nemaline myopathy in a murine model of the disease. Using mice that are deficient of Cullin-3, we outline a novel molecular pathomechanism that may be at play in patients suffering from mutations in KBTBD13. The manuscript can be found at JCI Insight.



About the Lab

We investigate muscle development, signaling and maintenance, by studying the biological role of sarcomeric and muscle associated proteins. We are particularly interested to decipher molecular mechanisms that play a role in the development of cardiac and skeletal muscle myopathies.
