Protein Folding and Stress Response

Kausik Chakraborty is interested in understanding the fundamental mechanism of protein folding homeostasis (Proteostasis) and its functional implication in misfolding stress. High throughput bacterial and yeast screening, and biophysical techniques are being used to study the role of chaperones in shaping protein sequence evolution and the role of different proteins and chaperones in signalling misfolding stress in the cell.

Advanced biophysical techniques like single molecule flourescence spectroscopy and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy will be used towards elucidating the molecular mechanism of stress sensing.
