Personal profile

Research Interests

Our research focuses on cell cycle deregulation by DNA tumor virus oncogenes (Adenovirus E1A, Simian virus 40 large T, and human papilloma virus E6 and E7). In particular, we are interested to find out how binding of these viral tumor antigens to cellular proteins such as pRb, p300/CBP and other proteins affect G1/S phase transition. We use molecular genetic approaches to study these aspects. We also work on molecular mechanisms of liver cell proliferation and perturbations of these mechanisms that lead to liver cancer development. We are particularly interested in Ras induced liver cancer model and we focus on a few key proteins including Med1 (a subunit of the mediator complex) and FoxM1 which is involved in liver cancer development.
