Research Focus

My laboratory is currently interested in studying the structure and function of a number of noncoding RNAs, specifically riboswitches, allosteric ribozymes and lncRNAs. One riboswitch project involves studying the structure and function of the bacterial glmS riboswitch that is also a ribozyme. We are interested in investigating whether non-natural riboswitch ligands can modulate gene expression and therefore may be able to act as antibiotics. Another project involves discovery of new riboswitches. One we are particularly interested in is a noncoding RNA found in mammals that is highly conserved among vertebrate genes required for spermine biosynthesis. The function of this mouse RNA element as a spermine riboswitch indicates a substantially broader distribution of riboswitches among eukaryotic organisms and represents a new drug target in a key metabolic process relevant to cellular and organism survival.
