A02 The role of histone acetyltransferase MOF in development and disease

The male specific lethal (MSL) complex is an evolutionarily conserved complex in Drosophila and mammals that contains the histone acetyltransferase MOF. This project aims to study the dynamics of the MSL complex during development using live imaging in early mouse embryos and plans to perform biochemical purifications in undifferentiated and differentiated cells with the aim to identify cell-type specific interaction partners of MSL proteins.
