overview

My overall research goal is to understand the mechanisms used by biological catalysts, both proteins and nucleic acids, to achieve high efficiency and stringent specificity. We are particularly focussed on the mechanism of medically important metalloenzymes. We are investigating the catalytic mechanism and specificity of protein farnesyltransferase and protein geranylgeranyltransferase I.
