Hui Xu

Hui Xu joined the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the Fall of 2013, and she joined the Goodwin laboratory in May of 2014. Hui Xu's undergraduate degree is in Health Sciences, so this represents a considerable shift in emphasis for her. In addition to taking courses above and beyond those taken by our typical graduate students, Hui has been evaluating the role of a specific tyrosine residue in KatG for its part in off-mechanism electron transfer and inactivation of KatG. So far, her studies have taken her into site-directed mutagenesis, steady-state kinetic evaluation, and most recently, stopped-flow rapid reaction analyses.
