Focus of research: I coordinate research efforts in Proteomics of human lysosomal storage disorders (LSD's), including implementation of ICAT like techniques. I optimized the in gel digestion protocol and colloidal Coomassie staining to get routine identification at very low protein abundancies. I collaborated with many different groups (in and outside of the AMC) in Proteomic studies. In the context of my own research (a.o. Proteomics of HIV-Tcell interaction), I initiated the reproducible large scale DIGE approach in our lab (together with Jeffrey Ringrose and Rienk Jeeninga) and used this to monitor changes in cellular proteins induced by HIV-1 infection. In several collaborations I analysed changes in protein PTM's, identified several biologically important proteins, tested peptidomimetics for biological activities and was involved in immunologcal work. I published several theoretical articles regarding genome architecture and evolution. I started with further Proteomic studies of different classes of parasites (e.g. HIV-1 and -mitochondrial fractions of- trypanosomes). Last but not least, I am also starting research to monitor oxidative damage of proteins, comparing conditions under which most energy is either derived from fatty acid breakdown or glycolysis, to test an hypothesis formulated in BioEssays 33, pp. 88-94.
