Ryan is our new technician. Ryan graduated from the College of William and Mary and then worked at Pharmaceutical Product Development before coming to VT. Welcome to the group!
Congratulations Yumin and Hannah for their publication that shows that the N5-adduct in the reaction catalyzed by 2-chloroacrylate hydratase occurs via radical recombination. Read it in ChemBioChem
In collaboration with the labs of Gustavo Pierdominici (Quilmes, Argentina) and Jack Tanner (U. Missouri) we determined that the rate limiting step in the UGM reaction changes from the a chemical step (with UDP-Galp) to product release (with UDP-Arap). The paper was published in Biochemistry
With Prof. Gadda, Georgia State U., we published a prospective on the use of kinetic viscosity effects to study enzyme mechanism. Read it in Biochemistry
Congratulations Dr. Liu from the Tanner lab and Heba from our lab on this great work. Check out the paper in Biochemistry
Pablo and Dr. Giovanni Gadda edited a SI in ABB dedicated to the latest flavin- dependent enzymatic reactions. Take a look!!!
