AG Brodesser(Lipidomics Facility)

In the long term the Facility plans to expand its service towards more general metabolomics applications by integrating metabolites of the glycolysis, the citric acid cycle and the pentose phosphate pathway into the set of service analyses.

Antibody-based therapeutic, aims of our research are:

  • production of recombinant S. aureus proteins and monoclonal antibodies for active and passive vaccination against S. aureus infections
  • modification of bacteriophage and viral particles to become vaccines or vectors for gene therapy
  • selection of antibody fragments via phage display to select for inhibitors of Staphylococcus aureus infections
  • development of bacterial strains for the diagnosis and treatment of tumor burdens by a combination of immunotoxin secretion and live imaging

TNF Signaling, NADPH oxidases, and Ceramide Generating Enzymes in Immunity to Infection and Cancer. In particular we currently pursue the following projects:

1) Individual roles of specific Nox enzymes in infection and cell death (Wiegmann, Yazdanpanah).

2) Individual roles of specific ceramide synthases and ceramides of distinct acyl chain lengths in TNF receptor signaling and ageing (Pongratz, Brodesser, Wiegmann).

3) Biological and biochemical characterization of neutral sphingomyelinase 3 (nSMase3) (Kwasny, Wiegmann)

4) Role of TNF-R1 adaptor protein FAN in cancer cell migration and metastasis (Böcke, Carstens, Buning)
