Dr. Brown, Dr. Nagarajan, and Mila Lam Published in Chemical Communications

Bacteria can “talk” to each other, and when the noise of this talk becomes chemically loud enough, infection results. Drs. Rajesh Nagarajan and Eric Brown with graduate student alumni Nhu (Mila) Lam conduct research that seeks to interrupt this chemical chatter by investigating a synthase enzyme that is involved in molecular signaling pathways. They recently published “Insights into β-ketoacyl-chain recognition for β-ketoacyl-ACP utilizing AHL synthases” in the July 13, 2018 edition of the journal Chemical Communications.

Brown, Nagarajan, and Lam’s abstract can be read here.
