Research Summary: My laboratory is one among the few research groups in the world with demonstrated expertise working on posttranslational N-terminal arginylation, which changes the primary sequence and surface charge of the substrate protein. Our main research focus is to explore the role of protein arginylation in the cellular stress response, metabolic reprogramming, and cytoskeletal rearrangements. We are passionate about applying our findings to better understand the pathological significance of arginylation dysregulation in cancer, injury, and aging-related diseases. In addition, we aim to develop new techniques/tools to address novel questions in arginylation-relevant studies.
