Title: Covalent immobilization of the SSO Est P1 carboxylesterase protein using unnatural amino acids

Project Description: 

I will be studying the immobilization of proteins to a solid surface known as resin. Proteins have useful functions such as disease detection. Normally, proteins require very specific conditions such as pH, temperature, and other environmental factors. Immobilizing useful proteins stabilizes them so that they can function as test sites for various diseases. Then, “protein biochips” can be formed. These consist of various test sites which rapidly screen patients for medical conditions. I will be studying how much stability this immobilization lends to a previously studied protein, as well as searching for other useful proteins to immobilize.
