Synopsis

The chemistry of oxygen sensing in humans and bacteria (from antibiotics to epigenetics and back again)

The lecture will describe studies aimed at identifying the roles of oxygenases in regulation of protein biosynthesis and their therapeutic manipulation. Attempts to correlate the biochemical properties of oxygenases with their physiological roles, in particular with respect to oxygen sensing will be covered. In addition work on enzymes involved in transcriptional and translational regulation, including via the oxygen-dependant modification of ribosomes will be looked at. Progress on the development of selective inhibitors for human oxygenases will be reviewed.

Speaker
