The Fluctuating Enzyme: From Catalysis to Vibrational Dynamics

Project description

Insight into the stochastic nature of enzymatic catalysis

Enzymes are key catalysts for essential biological processes that govern the growth, development and metabolism of all living organisms. Cutting-edge technologies have enabled scientists to characterise and manipulate enzymes, providing invaluable insight into enzymatic reactions at the single-molecule level. The EU-funded FLUCTENZ project will focus on the stochastic nature of enzyme activity, especially when enzymes undergo thermal fluctuations. For this purpose, scientists will develop theoretical methods and mathematical tools that will help them comprehend and determine the principles of enzyme behaviour under different conditions. Considering that enzymatic catalysis is the driving force of life as we know it, the project's results will have great significance for both basic and applied science.
