The group studies enzymatic processes and protein-protein interactions using methods from biochemistry, cell biology to molecular biology. The major focus is on molybdenum-containing enzymes that catalyze basic metabolic reactions in the nitrogen, sulfur, and carbon cycles of life. Current projects address sulfur transfer during the assembly of molybdenum cofactors and structure-function studies on enzymes of the xanthine oxidase and DMSO reductase families of molybdoenzymes.
