Research interests

My main research interest is the molecular physiology, regulation and function of membrane ion channels of epithelial tissues. I have had a long-term interest in the molecular physiology and pharmacology of epithelial ion channels and K+ channels, specifically, the Ca2+-dependent, intermediate-conductance K+ channel, KCa3.1. Recently, my lab has been examining the anterograde and retrograde trafficking of KCa3.1 to and from the basolateral membrane of polarized epithelia. The cytoskeleton and accessory proteins play major roles in the trafficking of proteins throughout the cell and to and from the membrane. Additoinally, protein complexes such as the Exocyst and Retromer and SNARE proteins play significance roles in proper transport and targeting of ion channels and transporters to the appropriate membranes of epithelial cells.

We are using biotin-ligase acceptor peptide (BLAP) technology to tagged K+ channels in order to examine their cellular and membrane fate. This technique has allowed us to ask many important questions about the molecular physiology and trageting of KCa3.1 to the basolateral membrane of epithelial cells.

I employ electrophysiological (patch-clamp and short circuit current measurements) and molecular biochemical techniques (immunofluorescence, immunoprecipitation, co-immunoprecipitation, cell surface immunoprecipitation, gel electrophoresis, biotinylation, PCR) to address basic questions of cell physiology and biology of ion channels.
