Our laboratory is interested in the relationship between an enzyme’s structure and its catalytic function in biological systems. In particular, we focus on enzymes that require the organometallic cofactor heme in order to function. My primary area of research in the Marnett laboratory was the mechanisms of intramolecular electron transfer in prostaglandin H synthase. Biochemistry: Structure and function of heme-dependent enzymes.
