Research area or topic of research:    Enzyme filamentation has recently been appreciated as an important and widespread biologically relevant phenomenon, with many potential roles including the regulation of enzyme activity. Higher order structures, or self-assemblies of metabolic enzymes have been observed by CTP synthase, inosine-5′-monophosphate dehydrogenase, and aldehyde dehydrogenase enzyme. I am interested in understanding the biological role and regulatory mechanisms of enzyme filamentation.
