Research Abstract

The main focus of the laboratory is the structural basis of allosteric control and its long-term application to understanding control processes resulting from protein-ligand and protein-protein interactions. This research focuses on enzymatic regulatory mechanisms that involve the ACT domain and ASB domains. The ACT domain is a structural motif widely employed in the regulation of protein activity by small molecules. The ASB domain is rare, so far found in only two proteins, usually in tandem with an ACT domain. Major techniques utilized will be site-directed mutagenesis, steady-state and transient kinetic analysis, and fluorescent techniques. X-ray crystallography is also employed on a collaborative basis. These studies are an integral step in the long term goals of this laboratory: to determine the relationship between structure and function in conformationally regulated control mechanisms; to eventually relate that to the physiology and pathophysiology mediated by these enzymes and by analogous systems; and to eventually understand allosteric proteins well enough to be able to apply basic principles to more complex systems.
