Our long-term objective is to understand the mechanisms by which oxidative damage contributes to the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases. Four major research projects are currently under investigation:
1) structure-function studies of the three isoforms of nitric oxide synthase and their regulation in vivo;
2) the role of mammalian peroxidases and nitric oxide synthases in promoting oxidative stress and their potential involvement in the disease state;
3) identification of potent inhibitors for mammalian peroxidases and scavenger to their final products; and
4) the role of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species on oocyte aging. These projects involve the utilization of state of the art analytical methods which include enzyme purification and expression, cloning, site-directed mutagenesis, and methods to study protein structure and function including EPR, mass spectrometry, HPLC, stopped-flow and rapid quench.
