SFB 1093: Supramolecular Chemistry on Proteins (Coordination: UDE)
Type of Funding: DFG Programmes, Collaborative Research Centres
Protein function is intimately connected with supramolecular chemistry: Substrate processing and various levels of regulation involve specific noncovalent interactions. Likewise, protein folding, assembly and protein-protein interactions are governed by intermolecular forces and their specific inhibition or support represents a very promising area for external interference, with profound mechanistic and therapeutic implications.
The CRC aims at applying recent knowledge and methods from supramolecular chemistry to achieve specific interaction with proteins by artificial ligands.
