Research Interests

Our lab focuses on two discrete research interests. The first is cellular metabolism. Cells have evolved complex mechanisms that allow them to sense their metabolic status and regulate cellular responses appropriately. A dysfunction in these regulatory processes has been shown to be involved in a variety of diseases including diabetes and cancer. Our lab is interested in the regulation of metabolism in response to the availability of nutrients and other factors affecting growth. We use model organisms, such as Saccaromyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast), to study key pathways involved in metabolic regulation. Proteins and pathways are often conserved and thus our findings may aid in understanding metabolic regulation in other organisms, including humans. Our lab focuses on the study of PAS kinase, a highly conserved sensory protein kinase that is involved in the regulation of glucose metabolism in both yeast and mammals. The PAS kinase protein has both a sensory and a regulatory domain. The sensory component consists of a PAS domain that may bind small molecule effecters. The PAS domain regulates an attached serine/threonine protein kinase that then modifies other proteins in order to regulate cellular processes in response to certain stimuli. Our goal is to further characterize the role PAS kinase plays in metabolic regulation by identifying specific mechanisms involved in its activation and function.

The second area of interest are Bacterial Hosts And the Phages that infect them (BHAP). Bacteriophages (phages) are viruses that infect bacteria, the most abundant cellular life on the planet. Due to their ability to transfer genetic material and/or kill their hosts, bacteriophages are a major driving force in bacterial evolution. They are incredibly understudied meaning that we regularly isolate and sequence bacteriophages that have no BLAST hits when analyzing their DNA or encoded proteins. Therefore they represent a reservoir of untapped biological resources. In addition, they can provide treatments to many bacterial diseases from phytopathogens to animal and human pathogens.
