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.
Samantha Greeley has decided to assist the Ronning lab in their efforts to develop new drugs to treat TB. Welcome to the lab, Samantha!
Prof. Ronning and Mike Banco were interviewed today about the recent PNAS paper and working with NASA to grow protein crystals on the International Space Station. As soon as we have links to the video, I will post them.
A link to the UToledo press release is here.
NBC 24 Ran a story about the research and has a video.
Chris' paper describing two new Antigen 85C structures modified by covalent inhibitors has been accepted at ACS Infectious Diseases. This was in collaboration with Jerry Parks at Oak Ridge National Lab and Steve Sucheck at Toledo. Well done Chris.
Congratulations to Chris Goins and our collaborators in the Sucheck lab. Our paper describing inhibition and anti-tuberculosis activity of ebselen derivatives was published in the Journal of Organic Chemistry.
Celine has been accepted for the Harvard Stem Cell Institute Internship Program this summer. Congratulations Celine and enjoy Boston.
