Unconventional Proteins and Membranes Traffic

4-7 October 2016 Lecce, Italy

Heterogeneous mechanisms, collectively named “unconventional protein secretion” are being characterized as different from well-established vesicles traffic. The underlying mechanisms are still subject to intense investigation.These processes concern major biological problems, such as cell-to-cell communication, tumorigenesis, tissue remodelling, inflammation, host–pathogen interactions, lipid metabolism.

A panel of scientists internationally recognised for their expertise in microbiology, plant and animal biology and human health combine forces to develop an open comparative approach to tackle these questions, timely. Read more…
