Serum albumin (SA) as a carrier protein - interaction of SA with metabolites and drugs
Metal binding to proteins and RNA with the focus on metal interaction with serum albumin and Mg-binding sites validation and classification in RNA crystal structures
Protocol development and optimization of macromolecular crystallization experiments
Protein structure determination and refinement
My thesis research focuses on studying the interaction between serum albumin (SA) and selected metabolites and drugs on the molecular and biochemical levels. I am particularly interested in determining molecular basis of metals interaction with SA, as well as how the physiologic changes in pH affect metal binding and SA structure. The principal technique is X-ray crystallography.
