Cell Dynamics and Extracellular Cues

The extracellular matrix (ECM) is fundamental to the form and function of soft connective tissues. Cells within these tissues establish the ECM during development, maintain it in health, remodel it during adaptations and repair it in response to disease and injury. Interactions between cells and their extracellular matrix regulate a wide variety of cellular processes of crucial importance for cell behavior such as migration, growth, differentiation, embryonic development, immune responses, cell death/survival ,cell-cell adhesion and so on.
Our lab focus on proteins which provide a platform for the transmission of signals in responses to extracellular cues, such as Ezrin, ARF6, ACAP4. Meanwhile, These proteins provide a regulated linkage between the membrane and the underlying cytoskeleton. We devote to utilize cell biology technology, molecular biology technology, advanced microscopy techniques (deconvolution microscopy, super resolution microscopy technology) to revealthe mechanism of Cell-ECM crosstalk and Cytoskeleton–ECM functional relevance.We also develop the proteomics technology to discover the function of protein post-translational modification (such as phosphorylation and acetylation) in Extracellular Cues Dynamics.
