  5. 5. January 2013Short description of PhD projectEnzymes are thought to co-localize in supra-molecular multi-enzyme complexes termed metabolons. Themolecular mechanisms governing such metabolon formation remain elusive, and obtaining of direct evidencewas attempted through establishment and optimisation of nanodisc technology and through homologymodelling. The nanodisc technique exploits self-assembling discoidal phospholipid bilayers encircled by astabilizing amphipatic helical membrane scaffold protein (MSP) to reconstitute membranes with integralproteins. Necessary membrane-anchored and cytosolic enzymes from an entire pathway with strong evidencefor substrate channelling were reconstituted in the nanodiscs. Preliminary results suggest successfulreconstitution of the membrane-anchored parts of an entire pathway. Binding studies with interacting solublepartners are being performed.Publications and patentsResearch publications in peer-reviewed journals:  Hamann, T., Laursen, T., Møller, B.L. 2009.
