Group Leader (Molecular mechanisms of neurotransmitter release) at INSERM UMR 1072, Marseille
We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying Ca2+ dependent exocytosis. We study the precise interplay between synaptotagmin and calmodulin in controling SNARE dependent fusion. Also, we are dissecting the molecular mechanisms of neurotransmitter release control by components of the V0 domain of the V-ATPase.
