8/4/2017 Garrett has spent the summer in the David Lab conducting advanced research alongside graduate student lab members Nicole and Cindy as part of the UC Davis Young Scholars Program. Even good things come to an end, and in following with David Lab tradition, Garrett leaves his mark before saying goodbye. We wish Garrett the best of luck in the future!

Just Accepted Manuscript: Structure Activity Relationships Reveal Key Features of 8-Oxoguanine:Adenine Mismatch Detection by the MutY DNA Glycosylase
7/20/2017 The recently accepted manuscript, Structure Activity Relationships Reveal Key Features of 8-Oxoguanine:Adenine Mismatch Detection by the MutY DNA Glycosylase, was accepted for publication in ACS Chemical Biology. MutY, remarkably, is able to specifically recognize and initiate repair of target OG:A mismatches from among a vast sea of natural DNA. To help reveal molecular features of OG that are critical for MutY recognition, this work explored the effects of systematic OG:A…
Just Accepted Manuscript: S K-edge XAS Studies of the Effect of DNA Binding on the [Fe4S4] Site in EndoIII and MutY
7/18/2017 Check out the latest manuscript from the David Lab and collaborators: S K-edge XAS Studies of the Effect of DNA Binding on the [Fe4S4] Site in EndoIII and MutY, which was recently accepted for publication in JACS. In this work, the iron-sulfur clusters of DNA repair glycosylases Endonuclease III and MutY were examined using S K-edge X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) in order to investigate DNA binding and solvation effects on Fe-S…
