Marine Resource Chemistry

Our laboratory aims to disclose the structures, metabolism, and functions of complex carbohydrates, sphingolipids, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) of marine organisms. The main projects are;
1) metabolic pathway of PUFA and PUFA-containing complex lipids of marine microbes,
2) structures, functions and applications of sphingolipid-metabolizing enzymes, and
3) molecular mechanism on infections of fish pathogens through glycosphingolipid receptors.
