Metalloprotein group (Andersson group)

The Metalloprotein group combines different biochemical and biophysical methods to study the structure and function of metallo-, radical- and redox proteins.

About the group

The group focuses on understanding how different redox proteins involved in oxygen activation and electron transfer function. These proteins are normally using different metal ions and other redox cofactors to perform their function. The research includes the study of ribonucleotide reductase that catalyses the last step of the synthesis of the DNA building blocks, haem proteins that interact with nitric oxide or peroxides, and flavoproteins that are involved in electron transfer networks. To understand how these proteins function and interact, the group uses a combination of different biochemical and biophysical methods in the structural biology landscape, especially different spectroscopic techniques and protein crystallography
