Mounting evidence suggests that metabolic exchange between nasal microbiota members plays a key role in providing host protection, but the metabolic interaction network of the nasal microbiota is largely unknown. To tackle this issue, we developed a defined...

01/03/202412:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsMarcelo GuerínInstitute of Molecular Biology of Barcelona, IBMB-CSIC"Sculpting therapeutic monoclonal antibody N-glycans using endoglycosidases"Host: Carlo CarolisAbstract:Immunoglobulin G (IgG) monoclonal antibodies are a prominent and expanding class of therapeutics used for the treatment of diverse human disorders. The chemical composition of the N-glycan on the fragment crystallizable (Fc) region determines the effector functions through interaction with the Fc gamma receptors and complement proteins. The chemoenzymatic synthesis using endo-beta-N-acetylglucosaminidases (ENGases) emerged as a strategy to obtain...

08/03/202412:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsAdrian BrackenSmurfit Institute of Genetics, Trinity College Dublin"Interplay between PRC2 subcomplexes and canonical PRC1 in Development and Disease"Host: Luciano di CroceAbstract:In 2021, Professor Bracken was elected an EMBO Member for outstanding achievement in the life sciences. Since 2008, his lab has made several seminal discoveries in the field of chromatin and cancer biology. In particular, they provided key contributions to the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of how Polycomb Repressive Complexes regulate cell-fate decisions in stem cells and in cancer, e.g. Conway et al., Molecular Cell, 2018 and Healy et al. and...
