Our research focuses on the design of structure-activity probes to elucidate enzymatic activity. The interdisciplinary approach includes molecular modeling for the simulation of inhibitor binding , overexpression of the target proteins and in vitro assays of enzymatic activity and inhibition. Our targets include HIV-1 integrase, the c-Kit and src-abl proteins , and the metalloproteinases associated with CXCL16 shedding. A more detailed description of this research can be be viewed at the link shown to the right.
