FEBS 2023 Workshop | Polyphosphate: The Actual Biology of an Ancient Polymer

May 9, 2023 to May 12, 2023

FEBS 2023_Cadiz, Spain

Although the origin of inorganic polyphosphate (polyP) predates life, this linear polymer of phosphate groups is ubiquitously present in modern living organism. In bacteria and many protists, polyP controls many vital functions including virulence by regulating transcription, cation-phosphate storage, and cell wall functionality. In metazoans, polyP plays a central role in bone mineralization, cancer, blood coagulation cascade, and its chaperoning property may be involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

This new FEBS polyP workshop builds on the success of the 2021 virtual workshop that created a great interaction in the polyP community that is now eager to meet and discuss the many practical issues, and theoretical directions of the research field.
