Welcome to the Suetsugu Lab

Laboratory of Membrane and Cytoskeleton Dynamics

Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences

University of Tokyo


 Each type of cells has specific shape that is determined by the plasma membrane. The shape of plasma membrane is determined by support of the cytoskeleton. Our lab will focus on the mechanisms connecting the membrane to the cytoskeleton. The responsible molecules will be the "interface" between the membrane and the cytoskeleton, that may be indispensable for special "shape" of each type of cells.
