Department of Molecular Biology

As of 1. January 2018, the Department of Molecular Biology has been merged with the Department of Biology to form the new Department of Biological Sciences (BIO). 

Please consult BIOs website to find information on our research and teaching.

Hangin’ out at the Golgi

Many proteins have the Golgi apparatus as their favorite hangout place. For N-terminal acetyltransferases (NATs), however, this is a rather unique characteristic as only one NAT, Naa60, was shown to localize to intracellular organelles.
