BBSRC Grant Success
The function of cells and tissues is often regulated by proteins that can be switched on or off by their reversible modification. These cellular functions include critical processes such as cell-division, metabolism, and death so it is important that we understand how these reversible modifications occur. The BBSRC have awarded Neil Bulleid (MCSB), Brian Smith (MCSB) and Richard Hartley (School of Chemistry) £5.8k for a three-year collaborative project to study one type of poorly characterised modification, called methionine oxidation. The research will determine how this enzyme works and how it regulates cellular function during normal physiology and during stress.
