The major focus of the research of my lab is the flagella and pili of methanogenic archaea, from physiological, ultrastructural, functionalÊand genetic aspects. We are particularly interested in posttranslational modifications of the structural components (flagellins and pilins) of these unusual surface appendages, particularly removal of their signa peptides and biosynthesis and attachment and relevenace of N-linked glycosylation.
