Walter K. Schmidt,
In our lab, we use
biochemical, cell biological, genetic, and molecular
approaches in conjunction with the yeast system to better
understand the function of proteases that act on
isoprenylated proteins. Examples of isoprenylated
proteins include the Ras family of oncoproteins,
Ras-related proteins, kinases, and secreted fungal mating
pheromones, among many others. Understanding the function
of these proteases may lead to novel therapeutic
strategies for cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and other
