Projects: 1) Performing site-directed alterations to the hemolysin A non polar core to probe for critical residues of structural and functional importance concerning red blood cell lysis. 2) Calculating and extrapolating chemical and thermal stability of SS loop mutants within fumarase C as part of a larger project in exploring the SS loop and its importance in catalysis of fumarate to S-malate.
