The Bridwell-Rabb Lab uses structural biology, biochemistry, and enzymology, to study the fascinating chemistry of metalloenzymes. We study metalloenzymes because they showcase reactivity that is essential for catabolic and anabolic pathways that impact the environment, human health, and agriculture. We want to understand how organisms exploit metalloenzymes to perform challenging chemical reactions with ease and how they perform this chemistry in the presence and absence of molecular oxygen.
