Proteins involved in Arthrogryposis, Renal dysfunction and Cholestasis syndrome

It has been known for decades that genetic mutations may cause misfolding and aggregation of the mutant protein. Such aggregates are found most commonly in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Abnormal protein-modification processes may also cause generalised intracellular protein mislocalisation in inherited diseases such as congenital disorders of glycosylation and mucolipidosis. However there are an increasing number of inherited human diseases in which protein mislocalisation results from mutations in the genes directly involved in the intracellular membrane (vesicular) trafficking. Vesicular transport is a process by which membrane-bound vesicles (“carriers”) are released from the donor...

About Us

The Medical Research Council Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (MRC LMCB) opened in 1993 on the Gower Street Campus of UCL. In 2013 the MRC LMCB became an MRC-UCL University Unit and Division within the Faculty of Life Sciences under the Directorship of Professor Mark Marsh

Our Vision

The scientific aims of the LMCB & Cell Biology Unit is to provide a molecular understanding of cell behaviour through discovery-based research. Cell biology is one of the most exciting and important areas of biomedical research and is likely to remain so for the foreseeable future.

Life at UCL

UCL enjoys a beautiful location at the heart of London. Studying and working at UCL will provide you with the opportunity to explore the best cultural and social events that makes London one of the most vibrant and multicultural cities in the world.
