Research Interests

Membrane vesicles are found in the medium from Gram –ve bacterium during growth. These proteo-lipids are called outer membrane vesicles (OMV). The functions of these vesicles are not very clear. However, some studies revealed that the vesicles perform several biological functions, such as DNA transfer, and protein delivery to eukaryotic or prokaryotic cells. Characterization of these vesicles may facilitate the design of protein, DNA or other drug carriers. Currently studies in our laboratory are in progress for analyzing the presence and function of OMV produced from the non pathogenic psychotropic Antarctic bacterium Pseudomonas syringae. Since these vesicles are reported to possess a role in transport of various molecules among cells, it is possible that the information on their structure and analysis of their components will enable to design molecular transporters.
