  • Modeling Protein Abundance's Impact on Postsynaptic Protein Network Organization 

The collaborative project with Pázmány Péter Catholic University's Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics aims to investigate how postsynaptic protein complexes form. The goal is to understand the diversity of synaptic protein complexes in the postsynaptic density (PSD), which is a dense protein network critical for learning, memory, and it is involved in neurological disorders. The abundance of constituent proteins in the PSD can vary greatly in different brain areas, depending on the developmental stage, circadian rhythm, and in response to stimuli, making it challenging to characterize its molecular organization.   

The project uses large-scale stochastic simulations of protein binding events to predict the presence and distribution of PSD complexes. Seven major PSD proteins are modeled based on experimental protein abundance data from various brain areas of patients. The results show that the relative ratio of protein complexes can be influenced by subtle changes in protein abundances, and simulations are crucial to understand the relationship between protein availability and complex formation. 

Further information and updates on other ongoing projects will be provided later.
