The basic normal functioning of a cell is the consequence of a delicately balanced regulation of various cellular activities. My laboratory is interested in elucidating the molecular mechanisms of regulation, in particular, the ground rules employed in recognizing specific targets and transmitting of signals among these macromolecular components. We are investigating three biological systems: E. coli cAMP Receptor Protein (CRP), West Nile Viral Envelope Protein, and Mammalian Pyruvate Kinase.
