Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Garry Buchko
The goal of this research proposal is to establish concrete design principles that define and control efficient proton (H+) transport for [FeFe]-hydrogenase (H2ase). Proteins are able to perform remarkably efficient spatial and temporal delivery of...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Garry Buchko
A potential consequence of rapid climate change is the emergence of epidemic infectious zoonotic diseases as the habitats of disease carriers change to expose human populations to new infectious agents. These environmental changes, along with the...
Lead Institution: Washington State University
Principal Investigator: Norman Lewis
Our overall aim is to further identify, dissect, and exploit dirigent protein (DP) mediated supramolecular protein complexes for macromolecular lignin assembly in order to ultimately achieve facile biomass deconstruction. Our ongoing EMSL work has...
Lead Institution: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Principal Investigator: Yi Lu
This proposal addresses a major under-explored area of research in our understanding of foundational principles for predictive biology central to energy production, i.e., the role of post-translational modifications in oxygen reduction reaction (ORR...
