We focus on the study of the altered oxide-reductive balance, that influences protein folding and calcium homeostasis, inducing deterioration of muscle cells.
More specifically, we analyse the role of SEPN1 protein, whose alterations generate a rare myopathy. We study the association between modifications in SEPN1 andendoplasmic reticulum stress. The ultimate aim is the development of a pharmacological strategy for the treatment of SEPN1-related myopathy.
This laboratory also investigates how the endoplasmic reticulum stress affects the aggressiveness of different tumors to suggest some useful targets for the development of effective cancer therapies.
