Director

Dr. Eduardo Zabaleta

Principal Researcher CONICET - Adjunct Profesor UNMdP

Eduardo leads projects involving mitochondrial complex I during the embryogenesis and photorrespiration in plants. He is especially interested in the role of the CA domain, which represents the initial step of complex I assembly and that is composed by proteins that are similar to gamma type carbonic anhydrases. In addition, Eduardo studies the presence of a homolog CA domain integrated in the complex I of diatoms and its participation during the life cycle, growth (biomass) and photorespiration in diatoms.
