Academy of Sciences, Institute of Physiology, Czech Republic (Associated Partner)

Main Research Interest

  1. Biochemical, molecular and genetic characterisation of membrane transport systems

  2. Yeast as a model organism to study transport processes in animal and plant cells; heterologous expression of transporters in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae

  3. Non-conventional yeasts – physiological and molecular study of their high osmotolerance

Role/Objectives in Translucent Project

Role of alkali metal cation transporters in yeast cell physiology (regulation of cell volume, pH, response to osmotic shock etc.).

Preparation and phenotype characterization of a series of isogenic strains lacking different combinations of plasma-membrane and/or organelle transporters for alkali metal cations.
