Michael Rape's Lab

Almost every aspect of eukaryotic cellular life is regulated by ubiquitin, a small "ubiquitious" protein that can be appended onto other proteins. In the Rape Lab at UC Berkeley, we use a variety of biochemical, biophysical, and cellular techniques to understand ubiquitin and its role in regulating fundamental processes in development and disease. We are a part of the Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) department at UC Berkeley and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI).
