September 2019. Dendritic cells (DCs) are key players in the immune system as they orchestrate the initiation of immune responses, but also the induction of tolerance. DC signaling response and the host recognition of invading pathogens primarily rely on receptors that are highly expressed on the ce...

June 2019. Our study characterizes the structure and dynamics of phospholipid bilayers close to phase transition employing atomistic molecular dynamics simulations. The simulations recover not only the well-studied first-order transition with discontinuities in the area per lipid or membrane thickne...

November 2016. SNARE peptides act cooperatively during synaptic vesicle fusion. It has previously been suggested that oligomerization of SNARE complexes, which is required for cooperative action in fusion is mediated by interactions between their transmembrane domains (TMDs) and further tuned by int...
