namba keiichi


Dr. Namba has been interested in the mechanisms of muscle contraction, cell motility, and protein transport, which are all driven by large macromolecular assemblies. He and his lab develop various methods for structural biology, such as X-ray diffraction and electron cryomicroscopy, as well as those for the measurement of single molecule dynamics, such as nanophotometry and single molecule imaging, and apply those different techniques in complementary manners to understand the mechanisms of motions in biological systems. They study structures and functions of bacterial flagella, injectisome, and other protein complexes involved in cell motility.
