Dr. Morita’s research focuses on the biosynthesis and regulation of glycolipids and other cell envelope components in mycobacteria. I will discuss two topics: 1) discovery of a novel periplasmic protein involved in the regulation of glycolipid biosynthesis, and 2) discovery of a unique membrane domain associated with polar elongation of the cell envelope.
