Research from the Giedroc lab published in Cell highlighted
May 17, 2022
The study identifies first cellular chaperone for Zn, shedding light on zinc deficiency, a global public health problem. David Giedroc, distinguished professor of chemistry, and two members of his group at Indiana University, graduate student Matthew Jordan and senior scientist Katie Edmonds, contributed structural and biochemical studies of ZNG1 sufficient to propose an atomic-level model for how ZNG1 and METAP1 “talk” to one another. Richard DiMarchi, distinguished professor of chemistry at IU, also participated in this study.
