Research Description

Certain bacteria have been shown to utilize ethanolamine (EA) as a source of carbon and nitrogen. They do so by specific transcriptional regulation orchestrated by a Two-Component System EutWV. . Since the by-products of EA catabolism are toxic to the bacterial cell, they are carefully carried out inside a special protein-bound microcompartment within the cells which are known as bacterial microcompartment (BMC). Dr. Chatterjee is using Listeria as a model organism to understand the assembly and dynamics of BMC during ethanolamine metabolism within the host cells.
