New publication from the Reinhardt and Strauss labs

Two faculty members of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology joined forces to bridge the field of cryo-electron microscopy (Mike Strauss) and extracellular matrix cell biology (Dieter Reinhardt). This interdisciplinary team also spanned faculties across McGill, as Michael Wozny (Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences) and Valentin Nelea (Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences) spearheaded the experimental approaches together with other team members and a visiting scholar.

Publication from ACB and McGill Undergraduates

A useful tool in protein research comes from the collaborative efforts of two bright McGill undergraduates, Jerry Gao and Maxwell Tong. Under the supervision of postdoctoral fellow Thibault Legal and Associate Professor Khanh Huy Bui, Jerry and Max developed the DomainFit program for the identification of protein domains in cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) maps at intermediate resolutions.

New publication from the Bui Lab

Effect of α-tubulin acetylation on the doublet microtubule structure.

Acetylation of α-tubulin at the lysine 40 residue (αK40) by αTAT1/MEC-17 acetyltransferase modulates microtubule properties and occurs in most eukaryotic cells. Previous literatures suggest that acetylated microtubules are more stable and damage resistant. αK40 acetylation is the only known microtubule luminal post-translational modification site.

New Publication by Postdoctoral Fellow Lia Paim

Cell division is a fundamental process for growth and repair in our bodies. It relies on the beautiful and complex machinery of the mitotic spindle to ensure the accurate distribution of genetic material. The spindle is made up of tiny structures called microtubules, which act like molecular cables to move chromosomes to the right places.

Fascia Summer School 2023

This past July 17-21st, the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology hosted the Fascia Summer School in collaboration with the University of Padua, Italy. 

The event featured didactic lectures on the most recent advances in fascia, dissection labs conducted by our lead anatomists, Carla Stecco and Gabriel Venne, and hands-on workshops to expose participants to the different fields of practice and research on fascia.
