Examining how biomolecular structure contributes to the processing pathways of two classes of molecules essential for human health: mitochondrial RNAs ((mt)RNAs) and vitamin B12.
Seyhan N. Ege Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Expertise: Macromolecular Structure and Function
Research:
Cells employ a vast arsenal of tactics to control gene expression - including chemically modifying biomolecules to regulate their biogenesis, function, and stability. In the Koutmou lab we study the post-transcriptional modification of messenger RNAs (mRNAs). The prevalence and significance of mRNA modification is rapidly being recognized; perturbations in mRNA modification are now linked to diseases including obesity, cancers and diabetes. The goal of our work is to understand how enzymatic mRN
