Field of Study

General Interests:

Medicinal and bioorganic chemistry, synthesis and investigation of novel probes of enzyme structure and function, protein mass spectrometry & proteomics, enzyme inhibition and binding kinetics, pharmacophore development and computational modeling of proteins, immunoorganic chemistry.

  1. Glutamate Neurotransmitter System:
    My group designs and synthesizes custom-tailored glutamate analogs to study and differentiate the pharmacology of the glutamate neurotransmitter system proteins, in particular, the excitatory amino acid transporters (EAAT), system Xc- (Sxc) and the glutamate vesicular transporter (VGLUT). Research in our group use protein mass spectrometry to solve the vesicle proteome and identify conjugates of neuroproteins that have been modified by custom ligands.
  2. Mechanism of Toxicity of Organophosphate Insecticides:
    The oevrarching goal of this research is to differentiate between toxic and non-toxic mechanisms of action by organophosphorus compounds using an array of chemical, molecular, and biochemical tools and approaches to identify biomarkers of OP toxicity in cells, tissues and organisms.  One of the dominant approaches used in our lab is chemical tags, for example, the use of fluorophores or isotopes to track and validate OP-modified proteins.  Since most OPs modify the essential neurotransmitter hydrolyzing enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE) at an essential serine, OP-AChE conjugates correlate strongly with OP mechanism of action. In our most recent approach, we have modified an organophosphate to contain a positron tracer atom (18F) to study the biodistribution and localization of OP in rodents. 
  3. Other Areas of Interest:

a. Immunoorganic chemistry.

b. Synthesis of phosphorus-containing analogs of alpha amino acids and their utility as inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinases.

c. Synthesis and utility of novel protein probes (fluorescent, UV-Vis, spin label, etc.
