Andreas Kuhn has his expertise in protein folding of membrane proteins. Studies include reconstituted systems with bacterial translocases and insertase, as well in vivo studies with Escherichia coli. For biophysical experiments, the membrane proteins are purified and their folding is monitored spectroscopically in real time after their addition to liposomes. Andreas Kuhn obtained his PhD from the Universities Basel and Freiburg im Breisgau 1982. After a Postdoc at UCLA with Bill Wickner he continued at the Biozentrum Basel from 1986 to 1989 and accepted a professorship at the University Karlsruhe. Since 1996 he is at the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart.
Does the dynamics of their transmembrane domain qualify bitopic membrane proteins as substrates for intramembrane proteolysis?
