DynaMo master student Victor de Prado Parralejo defends his MSc thesis in Biology-Biotechnology
A pleased Victor after the defence with supervisor Hussam Nour-Eldin
In his MSc project, Víctor focused on the development of an untargeted screen method to scrutinize the substrate spectra of membrane transporters. This approach was used to assess the substrate specificity of well-characterized plant transporters, where the results supported the current paradigm of substrate multispecificity of the NPF family. Additionally, the methods developed enabled the identification of a novel substrate for the NPF family supported by in-planta results.
