Welcome to the Homepage of the DFG Research Unit FOR2509
The Concert of Dolichol-Based Glycosylation:
From Molecules to Disease Models
The research consortium FOR 2509 is funded by the German research foundation (DFG). It joins experts in N-glycosylation, C- and O-mannosylation, in structural and lipid biochemistry, in proteomics, glycoproteomics, glycomics and lipidomics, as well as in developmental biology which aim to understand the molecular pathology of dolichol-based glycosylation disorders. You will find here all relevant information about the group leaders, their projects and the activities of the group.
Canceled because of the coronavirus outbreak
New publication – Exciting new results of the FOR2509 groups of Hans Bakker and Falk Büttner are now available. We congratulate Aleksandra Shcherbakova for her work on the functional impact of C-mannosylation on protein folding and stability of thrombospondin repeats. Elife. 2019 Dec 23;8. pii: e52978. doi: 10.7554/eLife.52978.
