STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY IN REDOX PROCESSES

Curso CEINBIO y CeBEM.

Del 6 al 10 de Noviembre, 2017 en Facultad de Medicina, Universidad de la República, Montevideo, Uruguay

Course description

The course will provide fundamentals for structural biology applications for redox events in proteins such as post-translational oxidative modifications, aggregation and redox catalysis. A problem-based focus will show how structural biology approaches can be applied to understand and resolve functional aspects in model proteins. Methods to be discuss includes: Resonance Raman, X-ray crystallography, Molecular Dynamics, EPR, Fluorescence, Circular Dichroism , NMR.

Session Topics

The Multiple lives of cytochrome c
Superoxide dismutation: how to be a hyper-efficient enzyme
Performing redox reactions with fast protein thiols
Redox processes in protein aggregation
