My present work involves in crystallization and structural determination of ADAMTS13 and variants using X-ray Crystallography. My goal is to understand the structural determinants underlying the interactions between ADAMTS13 and substrates and other regulatory proteins. Specifically, I determine the role of human neutrophil peptides (HNPs) on ADAMTS13-mediated proteolysis of VWF under various conditions.
