Signalisation rédox, protéines FeS

Signalisation redox et fonction des protéines Fe-S

The research of our group is focused on the structure-function of iron-sulfur cluster (Fe-S) proteins and redox signaling.

We aim to understand how Fe-S clusters are assembled in mitochondria and exported to the cytosolic compartment, using mammalian cellular models. In addition, the cellular stress response remains at the core of our activity and directly linked to particular redox sensing Fe-S cluster proteins. Fe-S cluster proteins, present in different cell compartments, are involved in critical biological processes including respiration, DNA synthesis and repair, iron homeostasis and heme synthesis. While the list of newly identified Fe-S cluster proteins is growing every year, structure-function relationship of most of Fe-S proteins is still unknown.

Our research in the past few years has improved the understanding of the biological function of mammalian Fe-S proteins, especially those classified as redox sensor proteins.
