Molecular Biology

Professor KITAGAWA Masatoshi

Our research interests are primarily in the areas of cell cycle and cell fate regulation. Currently we are working on six projects:

  1. Regulatory mechanisms of cell cycle and cell fate via ubiquitin system
  2. Molecular mechanisms of DNA damage response and DNA replication
  3. Regulatory mechanisms of cell growth/arrest signaling
  4. Function of long non-coding RNAs
  5. Molecular mechanisms of progression of nephropathy
  6. Post translational modifications of tumor suppressor gene products
  7. Molecular mechanisms of X chromosome inactivation
