Protein Chemistry

Research Areas

Our group combines chemical approaches, such as solid phase peptide synthesis, with biotechnological approaches in order to produce site-specifically modified proteins. Linking synthetic peptides and expressed proteins becomes possible through chemoselective ligation reactions and provides access to proteins with specialized properties. These proteins help to answer remaining biological questions regarding folding, enzymatic activity and protein-protein interactions in vitro and in vivo.
