Thermostability of DNA Repair Enzyme MUTY

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

This project was devised to determine whether or not DNA repair enzyme MUTY is thermodynamically stable. In the Horvath lab many of the reactions and experiments run put the enzyme in environments of 20 to 60 degrees Celsius. Therefore, in order to determine if the temperature at which the experiments are being conducted has an effect on the enzyme which could affect its ability to perform, I ran a glycosylase assay at each temperature and several time points. This data is important to know so that when running future experiments, we as a lab can be confident that the enzyme is preforming consistently.
