Dan Gonzalez is studying the structure and function of a protein subunit in a tumor suppressor protein complex. This complex is responsible for cell differentiation, division, and death, as well as gene regulation and expression. The work is currently being done in flies, where Dan is testing whether structural aberrations in the subunit lead to DNA binding abnormalities in the complex.
