EXPRELA is a research group with a long trajectory in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. This basic knowledge has also been applied to the development of biological tools for the expression of proteins of interest using microorganisms as cell factories. The diverse capacities developed by the group's members allow multidisciplinary approaches to solve research challenges with industrial and biomedical applications.
Currently, basic research topics of interest to the group are related to the control of gene expression through various mechanisms: transcription factors, lncRNAs, and interactomes, developing projects in this line oriented to biomedicine.
EXPRELA’s basic research lines also focus on the purification, production and modification of proteins. The group studies the structure and function of proteins with biotechnological, biomedical or nutritional applications. Obtaining new stable enzymes with high catalytic capacity in industrial conditions, and the production of enzymes for prebiotics’ preparation stand out from their expertise.
The group has collaborated with several companies in the food sector such as Queizuar S.L., químico, as Galchimia or biotechnological, as Proteos-Biotech, among others.
