Neurotransporters

The Neurotransporter Group focuses on the transporter proteins moving transmitter amino acids (GABA, glutamate and glycine) across cell membranes, and on the roles of these transporters in normal brain physiology and disease.

Perturbations in transporter function and expression have been reported in all neurological diseases, and these perturbations appear to be part of the pathogenetic processes ultimately leading to disabilities.

About the group

To study these mechanisms, the Neurotransporter group has acquired expertise in the construction of transgenic animals, membrane protein purification and reconstitution in artificial cell membranes, neuropharmacology, confocal imaging, electron microscopy, 3D-reconstruction, computer simulations, antibody production, robotics and advanced databasing.
