Measuring the Dynamics and Kinetics of OXA-58, a Class D Abeta-Lactamase from Acinetobacter Baumannii
OXA-58 is a β-lactamase enzyme that bacteria Acinetobacter baumannii employ as their chief defense mechanism against β-lactam antibiotic treatment. The catalytic activity of OXA-58 and its mutants was monitored as they ...
Obtaining Structural Insights on Bacterial Protein Complexes Using Time-Resolved Hydrogen-Deuterium Exchange Mass Spectrometry
Persistent infections by Pseudomonas aeruginosa are initiated by interaction of a type IV pilus (T4P) with receptors on the mucosal cells of susceptible hosts. Here, we examine the structural changes occurring between the ...
Characterizing the Structure-Function Relationship of Pathological Proteins
Protein structure and dynamics dictate the fundamentals of protein function. For example, a structured protein must change its conformation when interacting with various ligands. In addition, misfolded or intrinsically ...
