Research Description:

Dr Hamel's lab focuses on investigation of the mechanism to the structure of c-type cytochromes. These are universal heme containing proteins that function typically as electron carriers. Plastid and mitochondria harbor analogous c-type cytochromes but their assembly pathways are strikingly different. We are interested in comparing the maturation pathways of c-type cytochrome in mitochondria and plastids using yeast and green alga as experimental model systems.
