Project Details


Partial support is requested for the Gordon Research Conference on
Enzymes, Coenzymes and Metabolic Pathways that will be held at the
Kimball Union Academy, Meriden, Hew Hampshire from July 3 through
July 7, 1989. The emphasis of this conference is on enzymes:
their structure, the relationship of their structure to chemical
catalysis, the coenzymes and prosthetic groups involved and their
reactions, binding interactions of substrates, inhibitors and
effectors, the pathways by which metabolically contiguous enzymes
provide control in biological systems, and the regulatory features
of these enzymes. Among other topics, the 1989 conference will
include discussions on the analysis of transition state structure
from heavy-atom kinetic isotope effects, spectroscopic analysis of
enzyme-bound cofactors, newly described enzymatic cofactors,
mechanisms of electron transfer, enzyme action in organic solvents,
construction of enzymes for targeted catalysis, design of enzymatic
inhibitors, structure and mechanism of regulatory enzymes, newly
described metabolic pathways, enzymology of fertilization,
structure-function control in protein kinases, and enzymology of
nucleic acids.
