Research Interests

  • Regulation of the actin cytoskeleton:
    1) Reconstitution of actin assembly in yeast cell-free extracts
    2) Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and immunoblotting
    3) Chemical-genetic approach to dissection of the signaling pathways
    4) Development of a fluorescent assay for actin assembly in extracts
  • Structure-function analysis of actin-bundling proteins:
     1). Site-directed mutagenesis
      2) Protein purification
      3) Actin binding and bundling assays
      4) In vivo localization and function
