The long-term vision of the Pauli lab is to unravel new concepts and molecular principles governing one of the most dramatic developmental transitions, the oocyte-to-embryo transition. Our current research is centered around the following topics:
- Fertilization: How is fertilization regulated? We are specifically interested in identifying new molecular players and gain mechanistic insights into sperm-egg interaction and fusion.
- Translational regulation: We are interested in investigating translational regulation during embryogenesis.
- Toddler: How does the short, secreted protein Toddler/Apela regulate gastrulation movements?
To address these questions, we are mainly using zebrafish embryos since they are a powerful model of vertebrate embryogenesis. We combine various approaches, ranging from genetics, molecular and cell biology, biochemistry and structural biology to live cell imaging, genomics and evolutionary analyses.
