Research Interest

Macropinocytosis is a process of large-scale, non-selective fluid uptake. Cells extend thin sheets and cups (circular ruffles) from their plasma membrane into the medium, and eventually close them to entrap a droplet of fluid inside a vesicle called macropinosome. Macropinocytosis is important in a range of physiological processes. It allows cells to sample environment and uptake nutrients or capture antigens. Recent studies have also implicated it in cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. we use Dictyostelium as a model system, combining with high content imaging technique, to screen for novel macropinocytosis regulators. We also utilize mammalian system to further elucidate their function.
