About the Workshop

Workshop illustration

Septins, GTP binding proteins that assemble into filaments, are recognized as a unique component of the cytoskeleton. Discovered for their roles in cytokinesis, septins have also been implicated in various cellular processes including membrane dynamics, vesicle trafficking, and host-pathogen interactions. Many new advances have been recently achieved which have greatly improved our understanding of septin function in vivo. This EMBO Workshop will concentrate on recent findings and their impact on human diseases.
