Research

Research Summary: 

The expression of protein encoding genes is essential for the execution of all cellular processes. My lab focuses on understanding the contribution of gene transcription to the regulation of cell proliferation and the development of human cancer. Our research focuses on the TAF1 and TAF7 subunits of the transcription factor IID complex, a component of the general transcriptional machinery. We use a variety of molecular, biochemical and cellular techniques to investigate the histone acetyltransferase and ubiquitin conjugating activities of TAF1, their regulation by the TAF7 subunit, and their role in gene expression under normal and pathologic conditions.
