My research focusses on the respiratory multienzyme complex in Dehalococcoides mccartyi strain CBDB1. This complex is of special interest as it seems to be enough to transfer electrons from donor to acceptor in a protein-bound manner avoiding electron shuttles as quinones and cytchromes. My interest is to purify this complex and retain activity afterwards, to characterize the reductive dehalogenase and its anchoring protein in more detail with cross-linking experiments, gel-based methodes and activity assays combined with mass spectrometric analyes.
Furthermore I investigate the entirety of membrane complexes in strain CBDB1 with separation on Blue-Native PAGE and mass spectrometryi analyses, also kown as complexome analysis.
