Scientific summary

We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms leading to cell adaptation in the face of a fluctuating environment.

Our prime interest is to understand how cells cope with glucose presence or limitations, particularly in terms of nutrient transporter expression, trafficking and endocytosis. We notably focus on the contribution of signaling pathways and ubiquitin in this process.

Our model organism is the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
