The objective of this research, conducted under Dr. Marc Koyack of the SOU Chemistry Department, is to investigate the active site of two target molecules, calmodulin and g-alpha-I1, and determine common amino acid residues that can be recognized by the active site of each protein. The goal is to produce short synthetic β-peptides that mimic the natural peptides involved with these proteins, producing peptides applicable to biological environments and for use as novel medication.
