Explorations in Substrate Space

Enzymes are nature's catalytic machines. Massive increases in rates of reactions may be achieved through specific interactions between the enzyme and its substrate. We now have the ability to harness the catalytic power of enzymes and put them to work in a variety of applications. Enzymes are currently used in laundry detergent, food production, bioremediation, biofuels and synthesis of pharmaceuticals. But what do you do when you can't find an enzyme to work with the reaction you want to catalyze? You need to alter the enzyme in order to generate activity on new substrates. I will describe the generation of novel substrate specificity in both the alanine dehydrogenase and the haloalkane dehalogenase enzyme systems.

Chemistry Challenge

The Long Island subsection of the NY-ACS invites you to participate in the 16th Annual Chemistry Challenge, to be held at CUNY Queensborough Community College. The Chemistry Challenge is a fun, fast-paced Jeopardy-style competition between Chemistry students of local colleges. Timed, multiple choice questions (~75% General and 25% Organic Chemistry) will be asked during the competition. Students will discuss the questions with their team members and select a final answer using electronic clickers. Medals and prizes will be awarded to the top student teams. The atmosphere is exciting and brings both students and mentors together!

The deadline for company sponsorship and team submission with names of the participants is April 8th. There should be a maximum of three teams per school, and please indicate whether each student is a 2-year (freshman or sophomore) or 4-year (junior or senior) student. Late registration will be accepted only if there is space available.

To register a student team or obtain more information, please contact Paul Sideris.

Date: Friday, April 21st, 2017
Times: Dinner 5:00 pm
