Award Description: The aims of the parent grant, R01 GM068061, are to elucidate the structures of bacterial single-stranded (ss) DNA-binding proteins (SSBs) cooperatively bound to ssDNA, to reveal how enzymes take advantage of direct binding to SSB to process ssDNA/SSB substrates, and to characterize the anti-bacterial properties of inhibitors that block heterologous protein association with SSB. Significant progress on these goals now allow extension of the initial aims by (1) studying the universality of SSB/protein interaction strategies and (2) using Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) to better define the structures of ssDNA/SSB complexes. This application requests funds to support hiring a research specialist and purchasing capital equipment (primarily US-made) that will improve the tempo of research for GM068061, both of which are outstanding investments for ARRA funds.
