Research Synopsis

We use X-ray crystallography in conjunction with other biochemical and biophysical techniques to study the structure and function of the complex of proteins of the yeast cleavage/polyadenylation complex. Similar macromolecular assemblies are present in all eukaryotic organisms, and serve to truncate and polyadenylate the 3' end of messenger RNA prior to nuclear export. A second major project in the laboratory aims to understand the process whereby DNA tumor viruses recognize origins of replication and then melt, unwind and initiate DNA replication.
