Doctoral Researcher Position: Endoplasmatic reticulum turnover and outcome of sepsis
Endoplasmatic reticulum turnover and outcome of sepsis
Members of the reticulon protein family, i.e. FAM134, that act as ER-resident receptors binding autophagy modifiers such as LC3B have recently been shown to facilitate ‘ER-phagy’. FAM134B facilitated ER-phagy reflects a central housekeeping mechanism and its lack leads to sensory neuropathy. The FAM134 family of proteins consists of 3 isoforms with different tissue-specific expression patterns but their role under inflammatory stress conditions remains unknown. We hypothesize that these proteins differentially modulate tissue-specific stress responses upon life-threatening infections ultimately protecting against development of, or propagating resolution from multi-organ dysfunction associated with sepsis.
