Biochemistry, Bachelor of Science (BS, BSc, SB, ScB) at University of Sussex
My own lab research studied a unique genetic variant of a Peroxidase enzyme isolated from Camellia Sinensis. After scaling up production of the enzyme via a transgenic e-coli host, then isolating and puriying the extract - I detailed its activity profile using Michaelis-Menten kinetics, and went on to document the ideal conditions for crystallisation ahead of x-ray diffraction. The findings concluded that the unique mutation changed the active site of the enzyme, restricting substrate access via the traditional route, yet opening up a secondary site for interaction as a result of the changes in stereochemistry. Course subjects I found most interesting included Science Policy, Biotechnology Business, Bioinformatics, and Pharmacology.
