报告摘要:
Proteins mediate nearly all the biological processes in cells.  A protein molecule is a linear chain of 20 different amino acids, the sequence of which is specified by its gene.  The life of a protein in the cell starts from its synthesis in the ribosome.  The protein then undergoes many events and processes leading to its maturation, which include transport to the site of its function and folding and assembly into a unique structure that determines its function.  Since the functional state of the protein is always under surveillance, it will be cured when it becomes defective.  If it cannot be fixed any more or when it reaches the time for termination, the protein ends its life by degradation into amino acids.  This lecture introduces the recent knowledge on the molecular basis of the sophisticated cellular systems that mediate those processes and biological consequences of their system failure, which may often lead to human diseases.

Toshiya Endo is a professor of Department of Chemistry, Graduate School of Science, Nagoya University.  He received his PhD degree for his NMR study on snake neurotoxins at Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Faculty of Science, the University of Tokyo in 1982.  He became an assistant professor at Department of Chemistry, College of Technology, Gunma University in 1982, was promoted to an associate professor of the same department in 1987, and then became an associate professor of Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Gunma University in 1989.  In the meantime (1986-1988), he was a visiting scientist at Biocenter, the University of Basel, Switzerland, where he joined Jeff Schatz’s group to start his work on protein import into mitochondria.  In 1989, he moved to Nagoya University to become a PI as an associate professor at Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Nagoya University, and became a full professor in 1991 at the same department.  In 1996, he became a professor of Department of Chemistry, Graduate School of Science, Nagoya University.  In 2003-2008, he was a project-based faculty of the Institute for Advanced Research, Nagoya University.  He is now the leader of the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research in Priority Area from MEXT, ‘Protein Community’.
