Aaron Wright, Natalie Sadler Quoted in C&E News on Chemical Probes
Aaron Wright and Natalie Sadler, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, were quoted in a C&E News article "Probes Search Live Cyanobacteria For Biofuel-Production-Boosting Proteins." They were interviewed after a presentation Sadler made at the American Chemical Society national meeting in San Francisco August 10 on cell-permeable chemical probes developed at PNNL.According to Wright, who led the research, "We want to identify proteins where redox chemistry acts like a switch, and where keeping that switch on keeps production of your hydrogen or alkane fuel flowing." The article also contains outside opinions on the work by two of the most renowned scientists in the chemical biology field: Christopher J. Chang at University of California, Berkeley, and Kate Carroll, a protein redox regulation expert at Scripps Research Institute Florida.
