Sílvia Atrian Ventura
The main goal of my research is the study of several molecular aspects of the interaction between physiological and/or xenobiotic metals and biological systems, from a biological point of view: the features of the interaction between metal ions and proteins that determine their structure/function relationships, their biological functionality, and their evolutionary differentiation and optimization. All these issues are approached through recombinant DNA methodologies: recombinant protein synthesis, directed mutagenesis, genomics and proteomics screenings, metal metabolism and metabolomics.
