Walter

Dr. peter walter

Investigator

Peter Walter is co-discoverer of the signal recognition particle (SRP) directed targeting of membrane proteins to the endoplasmic reticulum which he has vastly elaborated. Recently Walter and Stroud reported the structural mechanism of targeting membrane proteins to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane by the SRP-SR interaction (10). Walter has been a key investigator in the elaboration of the response to unfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum that leads to huge exxpansoin of the endoplasmic reticulum. These systems are ones that we intend to harness in the MPEC.
