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.
Glycokids Family Meeting 2020 will take place from May 21st to 24th 2020 in Vogelsbergdorf
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.
