We are an experimental and computation group studying ATP Binding Cassette (ABC) proteins. The altered function or expression of ABC proteins lead to various diseases, such as pseudoxanthoma elasticum, cystic fibrosis, diabetes mellitus type II, adrenoleukodystrophy, etc. We aim to understand the molecular level processes resulting in ABC associated disorders and design strategies to overcome the effect of the altered functional state of ABC proteins.
We have also launched systems biology studies to understand how the chemodefense/chemoimmune system, which includes multi-drug ABC transporters, metabolic enzymes, and nuclear recpetors, protect cells from xenobiotics.
