About Tero Lab
Welcome to the website of TERO Lab, Department of Environmental and Life Sciences, Toyohashi University of Technology. The research target of our project is the dynamics and assembly of molecules in lipid bilayer membranes relating to biological reactions on cell membranes.
Lateral organization and diffusion of lipids and membrane proteins are crucial factors of cell membrane reactions, such as the transportation of materials and signals into and out of cells. We use supported lipid bilayers (SLBs), which are artificial lipid bilayer membranes at solid-liquid interfaces, as plasma membrane models. We observe the dynamics and assembly of lipids and proteins from single molecular level to mesoscale, by using single fluorescence molecular tracking, atomic force microscopy, and fluorescence microscopy.
