Profile

Project title: Investigation of the functional importance of NDH-1 for cyanobacterial energy balance

Summary: Biochemical techniques will be used alongside electrochemistry and EPR experiments with the aims: to characterise the mechanism for NDH-1 PCET by analysis of the PQ binding site and surface detectable conformational changes during forward and reverse NDH-1 turnover, to identify NDH-1 binding partners, their influence on NDH-1 forward and reverse turnover and their physiological relevance.
