The studies involve expression, purification, and site-directed mutagenesis of these proteins using the tools of molecular biology, protein chemistry, structural biology, mammalian cell culture, toxicity studies, confocal microscopy and live cell imaging. In addition, Transmission Electron Microscopy and Dynamic Light Scattering is employed for visualizing structures and aggregate sizes.
Biomolecular interactions and stability studies are carried out using Isothermal Titration Calorimetry and Differential Scanning Calorimetry. Another protein of interest is transthyretin involved in peripheral neuropathy. We are also interested in understanding the role of water and weak interactions, and that of chemical chaperones and osmolytes on the stability, folding, misfolding and aggregation of a number of model proteins.
Insights gained from these studies are being applied for structurally and functionally stabilizing therapeutically important proteins like human insulin, industrially important enzymes and some cytokines.
