Notre Dame Researchers Study Potential Cause of Common Birth Defect

Author: Brandi Klingerman

Small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) proteins are small peptides that get added on to other proteins to regulate their activity. While SUMO has many regulatory roles in cells, it is especially important for controlling gene expression during early development. Just a few years ago this connection between SUMO and gene regulation was relatively unknown, but now, Notre Dame researchers are exploring how a disruption to the SUMO protein’s ability to regulate embryo development may be linked to congenital heart defects.

Deadline Application: Post-Doc Challenge - Funding to Utilize CTSI-Designated Cores



The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) is soliciting proposals from postdoctoral researchers to develop translational research through the use of technologies and expertise available at the Indiana CTSI-designated core facilities available at all partner institutions. Translational research refers to research in the lab that eventually translates into patient treatment to improve human healthcare. Translation involves applying discoveries made during research (in the lab, through animal studies, etc.) to the development of clinical trials and studies in humans.…
