Energy transduction in KInetically asymmetric catalytic NETworks

Project description

Artificial systems mimicking cells' energy-demanding reactions

Endergonic processes are non-spontaneous reactions that require energy to proceed. Organisms use endergonic reactions to store energy from outside sources and build complex molecules and structures. These reactions are catalysed by enzymes that change conformation during their catalytic cycle. The EU-funded KI-NET project aims to reproduce the chemical reactions that our bodies use to produce energy, in artificial systems. Researchers will develop a general biomimetic strategy to realise catalysts that enable endergonic processes to take place. Learning how to perform these reactions holds important implications for various fields, such as energy conversion.
