IMPRS Distinguished Guest Seminar Series, Prof. Dr. Andrew Carter
A CryoEM perspective on transport by the microtubule motor dynein"
- Date: Mar 3, 2020
- Time: 11:00 - 12:00
- Host: Prof. Dr. Stefan Raunser
Andrew P. Carter is a British structural biologist who works at the Medical Research Council (MRC) Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB) in Cambridge, UK. He is known for his work on the microtubule motor dynein.His group is now interested in the many structural and mechanistic questions that surround dynein. What does the whole dynein look like at an atomic level? How can one dynein complex carry so many different cargos? How is the motor’s transport regulated? To answer these the group will combine in vitro reconstitution of transport and single molecule fluorescence motility assays with the latest techniques in structural biology.
