Our seemingly diverse interests are all connected: We have discovered the requirement of selenoproteins for appropriate brain function. Our research is now focused on delineating how GABAergic interneurons specifically depend on selenoproteins. The codon-specific analysis of selenoprotein translation brought us Read More …
