Project Details

Description

One of the big challenges in chemistry is to understand the function of enzymes at the molecular level, and the aim of the present project is to further develop this understanding.
The compounds under study are amino acids and peptides characterized by having metal-complex groups attached to the carboxyl or the amine terminal. The interactions of these particular metal complexes with proteolytic enzymes are explored.
An important aspect of the project is the biotechnological application of enzymes as catalysts for the synthesis of peptides.
