A Unique Family of Intramembrane Proteases


Authors/Editors: Regina Fluhrer
Publication Date: 2018
Type of Publication: Book chapter / Editorial material


Intramembrane proteases are proteins located in the core of the cell membranes of mammals and other organisms. Discovered at the end of last century, they are still poorly understood and implicated in a number of diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease, malaria and hepatitis C. Professor Regina Fluhrer and her team at the University of Ludwig Maximilians, Germany, study the function and mechanisms of intramembrane proteases, in order to better understand their role in health and disease.
