Welcome to the Gustafsson lab! The laboratory investigates the mechanisms of mammalian mitochondrial transcription. The levels of mitochondrial transcription are regulated in response to the overall respiratory needs of the eukaryotic cell, but the molecular mechanisms behind this regulation are poorly understood. Much of the work is performed using in vitro biochemistry and a reconstituted system for mammalian mtDNA transcription, comprising only a promoter containing DNA fragment, and recombinant proteins.
