Muscle Physiology and Proteomics Laboratory

Department of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior (NPB), College of Biological Sciences and Department of Physiology and Membrane Biology, School of Medicine

Welcome to the Gomes Lab WiKi site where we are interested in the molecular mechanisms of signal transduction, particularly in muscle contraction and cardiovascular disease. The two main research areas in my laboratory are: the role of the proteasome in normal, protected and diseased cardiac and skeletal muscle and the role of troponin in calcium regulation of muscle contraction in hypertrophic, dilated and restrictive cardiomyopathies.

The ubiquitin-proteasome system is the primary mechanism of protein degradation in all cells. A multifaceted experimental approach is being utilized to investigate the proteasome and troponin complexes.
