Research Program:

Investigation of the structure and role of tmRNA in regulation of translation and protein turnover in bacteria. The studies focus on the specific features of several critical interactions between tmRNA, its associated proteins, and the ribosome.

Experimental methods: site-directed mutagenesis, site-directed cross-linking and phylogenetic comparisons with the cloned components of the tmRNA system.

Research Support: National Institute of Health, "Genetic and chemical probes of trans- translation". 1998-2003.
