The Biological and Biomedical Consequences of Protein Moonlighting

29—30 July 2014

Charles Darwin House, London, UK

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting


Meeting Background


Protein moonlighting, the phenomenon of proteins exhibiting more than one unique biological function, is emerging as a factor in both microbial infection and idiopathic disease and a potential source of additional biological network complexity. Unanswered question about protein moonlighting, include: how common is the process, what are its evolutionary mechanisms, what is its structural biology, how moonlighting proteins can be identified and what its role is in human and veterinary disease.



  • The definition of protein moonlighting and its generality
  • How to identify moonlighting proteins
  • Structural biology of protein moonlighting
  • Evolution of protein moonlighting
  • Moonlighting proteins in human infectious disease
  • Role of moonlighting protein in mammalian physiology and pathophysiology

Proceedings (invited speakers) will be published in Biochemical Society Transactions.


Abstract deadline: 2 June 2014.

Abstract submission is now closed.



Earlybird registration deadline: 24 June 2014.

Registration is now available online. 


There will be a Biochemical Journal Prize of £200 for the best short talk, submit your abstract and tick the option to be selected for an Oral Presentation.  


Horizon Scientific Press will be offering a £100 prize for the best poster.  


Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.
