Bruno Antonny

Group leader and Research Director, IPMC.

Expertise: Biochemistry of protein membrane interactions through reconstitution approaches. Our aim in SPHERES is to get a quantitative view of the surface of LD in adipocytes in term of protein and lipid composition, relative surface occupancy, domain formation and dynamics, and reactivity to lipases.

Alenka Copic

Group leader, CRBM.

Cell Biology and biochemistry of perilipins. Aim in SPHERES is to better understand the relative roles of the various perilipins (notably Plin1 and Plin4) and their domains on the function of the LD in the mature adipocyte.

Joëlle Bigay

Researcher, IPMC.

Area of expertise: Biochemistry, Reconstituted system study of protein / membrane interactions (purified proteins / liposomes of defined composition) or of lipid transport activity (in particular cholesterol / Pi4P exchange by OSBP) between two types of membranes (membrane contact sites). Contribution to the project: interaction of proteins on the surface of lipid droplets, notably lipid transfer proteins.
