    Differential regulation of T cell plasma membrane proteins by N-glycan branching and clathrin-mediated endocytosis
    NIH DP2AI164301Jun 15, 2022 - May 31, 2027
    Role: Principal Investigator
    Description: The N-glycan branching pathway controls immunity and inflammation by controlling turnover rates of proteins on the surface of T cells. However, which proteins are regulated in this manner, and how this pathway promotes expression of some proteins while inhibiting expression of others is unknown. We propose using a quantitative proteomic approach to analyze all surface proteins simultaneously and to examine the hypothesis that these extracellular glycans cooperate with intracellular endocytosis machinery to differentially regulate cell- surface protein turnover.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
