Ann Magnuson Group
We focus on biophysics and biochemistry of hydrogenases and photosynthetic membrane proteins. We use biophysical techniques, such as EPR spectroscopy, to analyze how electrin transfer componets are affected by ther chemical environment. Analyzing fundamental aspects of enzymes advances the understanding of the function of these enzymes, but also how to engineer them to our benefit. Is redox tuning the final frontier of bioinorganic chemistry….?
