My research interests include metal transporters focusing on P type ATPase exporters and SLC39 family member importers.
Two proteins I am currently working on include ZntA and ZupT, two representative proteins from the two families. Work with ZntA includes analysis of truncated versions of the protein as well as exploring novel metal substrates. Work with ZupT encompasses determining the activity and recognizing substrates of the protein as well as mechanism of transfer.
