Project description

MALT1 is a protease that has so far mainly been studied in immune cells. MALT1 is however also expressed in neuronal cells, where its function is still completely unknown. With this project we want to investigate the activity and function of MALT1 in neuronal cells using biochemical as well as genetic approaches.
