|Report||In April 2015 I have visited the workgroup of Prof. Ikegami at the YCU in Japan. My research project was focused on the investigation of the structure-function relationship of the cyanobacterial cytochrome b6f complex which is one of the main enzyme complexes in photosynthesis. I previously cooperated with Prof. Ikegami in order to solve the atomic resolution structure of PetP, a subunit of the b6f complex exclusively found in cyanobacteria and red alga but not in plants. The RS Plus funding allowed me to complement the structural information by a detailed study of the interaction mechanisms between PetP with other proteins by NMR. Altogether I can really recommend a research stay in Japan.|
