LiCata Lab - Protein Structure and Function Lab


Our laboratory studies proteins: most particularly protein-DNA and protein-ligand interactions, along with protein folding and stability. Our work is primarily focused on the energetics and global structural attributes of these processes and how they are controlled. We utilize several different model systems to address questions in these areas, including the Type 1 DNA polymerases from Escherichia coli and Thermus aquaticus, HIV Reverse Transcriptase, the mouse adipocyte lipid binding protein, and the classic allosteric enzyme aspartate transcarbamylase.
