Laboratory of biocatalysis

Laboratory of biocatalysis

Department of Peptide and Protein Technologies

Head: Alexander Gabibov

biocatalisys, catalitic antibodies, autoimmune diseases, recombinant proteins, cytokines, interferons

Laboratory of biocatalysis was founded in 1997. Two major projects developing in the Laboratory that became a continuation of the Professor Gabibov’s pioneering work.

The first group that maintained by Ivan Smirnov continues to study a classic "abzimology" but a qualitatively new level. It is looking for a balance between combinatorial methods and rational design to create proteins with predetermined properties de novo. Recently the group developes the microfluidic technologies for multi-parameter screening of biocatalysts clones and cells in general.

The second team maintained by Alexey Belogurov studying the molecular basis of autoimmune processes with an emphasis in autoimmune neurodegeneration. Basically, on the agenda is a chronic demyelinating disease of the central nervous system — multiple sclerosis, and also a neurodegeneration and peripheral nervous system — Guillain-Barré syndrome. The Laboratory developes screening technology, such as yeast, phage and lentiviral displays (Tatyana Bobik participates in this work).

Early significant advances in biotechnology have been achieved in the laboratory such as  expression of proteins, for example, blood factors, antibodies in prokaryotic systems and in cell line CHO. A huge contribution to the study made by professor Natalia Ponomarenko.

The laboratory has a wide range of partners both at the Institute and beyond. In collaboration with the Laboratory of Proteomics researchers study multiple sclerosis and Guillain-Barre syndrome, they workes on the creation of immunotoxins with the Laboratory of Protein Engineering and the Laboratory of Molecular Immunology, also they conduct the study of ion channels in autoreactive lymphocytes together with the Molecular Instruments for Neurobiology Group.

In addition, the Laboratory cooperates with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Hamburg, the Institute of Physical-Chemical Medicine, the Center of Nanotechnology of Russian Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Chemical Biology and Fundamental Medicine of  Russian Academy of Sciences, SRP "Bioclinicum" and A.N. Belozersky Institute of Physico-Chemical Biology Moscow State University. The Laboratory keeps a good relationship with several prominent figures such as Nobel laureates Aaron Ciechanover and Sidney Altman, a former president of the Scripps Research Institute, and a father of modern abzimology Richard Lerner etc.
