RESEARCH INTERESTS

  • ‧Molecular Enzymology: Several enzymes as potential targets for drug discovery are under investigation.

  • ‧Membrane associated Proteins and peptides

  • ‧Proteomics approaches to search interaction partner of Oct4

  • ‧Protein-DNA interactions: Some DNA-binding proteins (like chromosomal proteins ) and many important transcription factor with DNA are of interest.

  • ‧Proteins from extreme environments: Microorganisms that live in extreme environments including extreme heat, cold, pH (acidic or alkaline) or radiation resistance have unusual proteins. Some enzymes described above are from those organisms.
