Post Translational Modifications: Detection and Physiological Role

Post-translational modifications create the enormous structural and functional diversity required to integrate information regarding the nutrient and stress status of the cell and to regulate essential cellular functions. Recent technological advances, particularly in the area of mass spectrometry, are revealing new modifications and providing novel insights into the role of PTMs in integrating information and regulating signal transduction. This biannual meeting brings together leading experts in the study of a wide variety of different PTMs to allow cross-fertilization, presentation of the most exciting breakthroughs in the methodology and biological functions of PTMs and lively discussions of new concepts and approaches.
