Research summary:

PCR-based engineering of the yeast genome is an approach being used in my lab to study any visible intracellular structures (foci/filaments) formed by metabolic enzymes. The dynamically reversible assembly of several metabolic enzymes has been studied and characterized as a biological means to control enzymatic activity and pathway flux, in response to metabolic changes, starvation, and other stresses. Moreover, some of these enzymes might have some unprecedented moonlighting functions, in addition to their catalytic activity, that await to be revealed.
