Chris and Thanuja collaborated on a great piece showing that different M. tuberculosis esterases do not all respond to Tetrahydrolipstatin in the same manner. Some esterases are irreversibly inhibited while some use it as a substrate. Nice work!
Chris successfully defended his dissertation. Congratulations Chris! He will be starting his new Post-doc position in Dr. Palczewski's lab at Case Western Reserve University. Well done and good luck!
Congratulations to Cecile on the publication of her Homoserine Kinase paper! Very well done.
Chris Goins' paper describing the covalent inhibition of the Antigen 85C mycolyltransferase with Tetrahydrolipstatin was accepted for publication in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. Congratulations Chris!
The paper describing the development and testing of a Fluorescence polarization probe for ATP and S-adenosylmethionine utilizing enzymes has been accepted for publication in Analytical Chemistry. Great work! This represents the start of an entirely new direction for the Ronning Group.
Chris' and Celine's first paper focusing on how the M. tuberculosis-encoded Rv3802 protein recognizes the phosphatidylinositol substrate was accepted for publication in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. Well done! Congratulations.
Cecile was invited to give an oral presentation of her work at the 2017 Midwest Enzyme Chemistry Conference in Chicago. It was very well received and she was immediately invited to give a talk at a Gordon Research Symposium in summer of 2018. Congrats Cecile!
Congratulations Cecile! The paper was accepted for publication in Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry.
Well done Chris.
