Matthias Fellner, Laura M Doughty, Guy N L Jameson, and Sigurd M Wilbanks, Analytical biochemistry, 2014
Biochemists need enzyme assays in order to answer key questions, from "What does this gene product do?" to "Is this a good potential drug?" A new, fast and robust assay developed in our department is on the cover of the forthcoming edition of Analytical Biochemistry. Doctoral student Matthias Fellner developed the assay to study cysteine dioxygenase, the enzyme which controls breakdown of cysteine, a process that fails in a number of diseases, including Parkinson's. The assay already speeds work in the Wilbanks and Jameson labs, and should make comparison of results in different labs much easier.
