  • Kyoung
    • 1:30 pm
    • Beckman Institute Room 3269 (3rd Floor Tower Room)

    Glucose metabolism is biochemically intertwined between energy metabolism and building block biosynthesis in living cells. It has not been investigated how its metabolic network is designed to govern glucose flux in space and time. Dr. Kyoung will demonstrate how glucosome assemblies behave like liquid droplets in human cells and reversibly respond to environment changes.

    Spns lipid transporters are critical for transporting sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) and lysolipids across cellular membranes. S1P regulates the growth, survival, and migration of cells with profound proangiogenic effects. In humans, Spns2 acts as the main S1P transporter in endothelial cells, making it a potential drug target for modulating S1P export and signaling.
