Function: Analytical/Synthesis

Department: CLAS Research Technical Services
College/Unit: COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES

Description:

The Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) Facilitys primary mission is to determine structural details of proteins that contain paramagnetic centers. It is used to characterize a wide variety of biochemical systems, providing information on an atomic scale in free radicals and in the vicinity of certain paramagnetic metal ions. Changes in structure often occur during the functional cycle of a protein, and tracking these changes by EPR has become a much-used technique for determining mechanism and function from structure. The facility also provides instruction in instrument operation.
