Thiamine plays an important role in cellular metabolism. Human and  animal need to uptake thiamine de novo. In other thiamine-producing species, thiamine is further phosphorylated into more active form, thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP). TPP is regulated directly by riboswitches which are series of untranslated ribonucleotides. The aim of my PhD project is to elucidate different aspects of thiamine metabolism by in order to gain knowledge about riboswitches and further apply into technological perspectives.
