Research Summary

Intracellular membrane fusion involves the assembly of cognate v-SNAREs and t-SNAREs between opposing membranes. At the neuronal synapse, a cascade of components and reactions controls SNARE complex formation and couples the triggering signal to the fusion machinery. To elucidate the molecular function of the regulatory machinery, we are attempting to reconstitute neurotransmitter release in vitro.
