We are interested in the functional analysis of intracellular transport mechanisms and have identified novel protein families participating in these processes, the PACSIN and the EHD protein family. Individual members of these families are involved in endocytosis, recycling and secretion of distinct cargoes via vesicles or tubular structures. Another aspect of our research involves investigations on changes of these processes in neurodegenerative diseases with focus on the neurospecific family members.
