FAPESP São Paulo Excellence Chair (SPEC), in experimental stage, aims at providing the coming of top notch scientists from abroad to create research nuclei in São Paulo universities. The projects are developed under the responsibility of a Principal Investigator, associated with higher education or research institutions in the State of São Paulo. The selection is through a peer-reviewing system.

  • Characterization of the protein phosphatase uis2 of Plasmodium as a new tool for malaria drug development, AP.SPEC

    Characterization of the protein phosphatase uis...

    We have previously shown that phosphrylation of eukaryotic initiation factor 2, more precisely a residue in the alpha subunit (elF2alpha), is a key regulatory process that arrests translation during the transition of Plasmodium parasites in the insect and during the intraerythrocytic stages. Preventing this phosphorylation by knocking down specific kinases prevents continuation of the p...

    This project has the main objective of developing a route of insertion of graphene oxide (GO) in polymeric matrixes in order to obtain a good dispersion and maintain the structural integrity of the nanoparticle. Two polymeric matrices will be used: polypropylene (PP) and poly (ethylene terephthalate) (PET). Are being sought, especially, improvements in the mechanical and barrier propert...

    This is the work plan for the application of the post doctorate Henrique Oliveira Sawakuchi, at the Center of Nuclear Energy in Agriculture (CENA-USP), scholarship holder FAPESP 2014/21564-2. This research visit will be developed at University of Washington, Seattle, USA, supervised by Professor Richard Keil. The motivation of this internship is learning analytical procedures, data anal...

    Structural characterization of an essential pro...

    The biosynthesis of bacterial cell wall has been studied for several decades to identify targets for the development of antibiotics. However, the emergence of multidrug-resistant bacteria has led to the need to discover and characterize new molecular targets. The synthesis of peptidoglycan, a major component of the bacterial cell wall, involves the participation of macromolecular comple...

  • Structural characterization of a membrane protein complex involved in bacterial cell wall synthesis, BE.EP.DD

    Structural characterization of a membrane prote...

    The cell wall is an essential structure for bacterial survival, being responsible for several vital cellular functions such as division, elongation, secretion of virulence factors, and adhesion. Its main constituent is the peptidoglycan, a polymer formed by polymerized glycan chains cross-linked by stem peptides. The enzymes which participate in peptidoglycan synthesis act in an orchest...
