EXROP Projects: Susan S. Taylor

Susan S. Taylor


Susan Taylor and her colleagues are studying the structure, dynamics, and localization of cAMP-dependent protein kinase, a prototype for the protein kinase superfamily. Understanding the dynamic behavior of these proteins, how they behave individually, and how their structure and dynamics are altered as part of a large molecular assembly are fundamental questions for signal transduction today. Taylor and her colleagues are striving to define, in structural terms, the protein kinase A (PKA) proteome.
