Structural biology of signalling

Prof Djordjevic investigates how structural features impact the role of key signalling proteins. Her laboratory carries out both basic and translational research involving signalling molecules in prokaryotes and human cellular systems. Her seminal work on bacterial two component signal transduction systems and methylation regulation of the Salmonella typhimurium chemotaxis receptors was followed by more recent investigations of the molecular mechanisms of regulation of signalling in response to oxygen, in M. tuberculosis, and arsenite in rhizobium NT-26.
