Research Interests

Using X-ray single crystal diffraction and biophysical methods we characterize the structure-function-relationship of enzymes, proteins and protein complexes. The investigated systems are mostly related to signal transduction and biotransformation. A special topic of our research is related to protein chemistry and kinetic protein crystallography. We apply different methodologies (e.g. caged technology, fluorescence spectroscopy) to gain insight into the mode of action of enzymes.
