Research

Research Group 1

Cecilia Bucci
Flora Guerra
Roberta Romano
Marco Mitruccio
Silvia Resta

Research Themes

  • Role of RAB proteins in the endocytic pathway
  • Molecular basis of Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 2B disease, a peripheral neuropathy caused by mutations of the RAB7 gene
  • Molecular mechanisms underlying genetic and acquired diseases (cancer, infectious diseases, neurodegenerative diseases) due to alterations of vesicular trafficking

Keywords: Endocytosis, Autophagy, Lysosome, RAB proteins, Intermediate Filaments, Extracellular vesicles, Cancer, Neurodegenerative diseases.

Research Group 2

Patrizia Rampino

Research Themes

  • Genetic and molecular basis of stress response in plants.
  • Production of recombinant proteins in heterologous prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems.
  • Molecular traceability in the food chain: detection of food contaminants or quality-related alleles, identification of pathogens in food matrices, genetic characterization of yeast strains.

Keywords: Stress-related genes, recombinant technologies, food quality.
