<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Martin Horvath

Carotenoids are found in the pigments of brightly colored fruits and vegetables and possess antioxidant properties. There is immense interest in understanding the benefits of the antioxidant properties to alleviate chronic diseases, such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). With the overarching goal to discover the structure of GSTP1 bound to zeaxanthin, virtual molecular docking is utilized to explore binding specificity of GSTP1 and StARD3.
