Irwin Fridovich
Phone: (919)684-5122
Email: fridovich@biochem.duke.edu
Research Interests: Mechanisms of action of enzymes; oxygen metabolism. Superoxide (O.-2) is produced in aerobic cells during both spontaneous and enzymic oxidations and it is capable of directly or indirectly damaging proteins, nucleic acids, and unsaturated lipids.

Research Interests: My research is concerned with studying the dynamics of single enzyme molecules using fluorescence microscopy. Ensemble averaged measurements (normal enzyme kinetics) can mask some of the individual events that occur during catalysis.

Research Interests: The research in our laboratory deals with the chemistry and biology of enzymes in which the element molybdenum is an essential constituent. Recent studies in the laboratory have led to the discovery and characterization of a novel prosthetic group, called molybdopterin, shown to be present in all Mo-containing enzymes (except nitrogenase) and is intimately involved in the catalytic activity associated with the molybdenum centers of the enzymes.
