Bilbao 2020: Registration and Abstract Submision Open

View event Writing and Editing the Ubiquitin Code” is a one-and-a-half day symposium that will focus on how the code is written and edited through ligases and proteases, how the different modifications affect cell signaling, and how new technologies can be applied to analyze these modifications. Presentations will cover a wide range of topics, from genome instability and metabolic regulation, to cancer, neurodegeneration and infectious…

March 2019 training course in Valencia

Training course | CNRS-CIPF | VALENCIA Crosstalk between Ub family members under stress conditions 11-15 MARCH 2019 Six UBIRed and six UbiCODE fellows were trained on techniques for detection of total and individual proteins simultaneously modified by UbLs. The detection of proteins modified by distinct members of the Ub family is still a challenge. Different methods were used to analyse Ub chain composition including detection…
