Prenylated-flavins: Application and Biochemistry (pre-FAB)

Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2021,

Our group has recently discovered a new type of cofactor: a prenylated-flavin that has azomethine ylide properties. This cofactor is an integral part of the widespread ubiD/ubiX system. The latter is implicated in the non-oxidative reversible decarboxylation of aromatic substrates, and plays a pivotal role in bacterial ubiquinone biosynthesis or microbial biodegradation of aromatic compounds. We ...

Elucidating the role of ultraviolet radiation in melanoma (MMUVR)

Start date: Mar 1, 2016, End date: Feb 28, 2021,

Melanoma incidence continues to increase across Europe and compared to other cancers, it disproportionately affects young people, causing a significant loss in life-years in those affected. Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is the only environmental risk factor in melanoma, but the underlying genetic constitution of the individual also plays an important role. However, our knowledge of the gene-gene and ...
