Profile

Project title: Structural molecular biology and synthetic biology of bacterial microcompartments and nanotubes

Summary: I am investigating the role of N-terminal extension peptides present in a number of enzymes encapsulated within bacterial microcompartments.  How do these extensions interact with specific shell proteins and enable the encapsulation of native enzymes? Can we use these interactions to modify microcompartment structure and encapsulate non-native cargos?
