Prof. Suzanne Walker, Harvard University

Structure, Function, and Inhibition of Two Essential Glycosyltransferases

I will be talking about E. Coli MurG and human O-GlcNAc transferase. The first is an enzyme essential for peptidoglycan biosynthesis. The second is an essential human enzyme that functions as a nutrient sensor that couples metabolic status to cell signaling pathways. We have solved the crystal structures of both. We will talk about similarities, differences, and strategies for inhibition of glycosyltransferases.

For more information contact Prof. Wendy Kelly (404-385-1154).
