  • Testing Macromolecular Rate Theory

    Kraakman, Kirsty Leigh (University of Waikato, 2017)
    Enzymatic rate increase with respect to temperature has widely been described by transition-state theory. The experimentally observed rate decline above an optimum temperature (Tₒₚₜ) for enzymes has previously been attributed ...
  • The Biology and Biochemistry of PhoH2 proteins

    Andrews, Emma Sophie Vout (University of Waikato, 2013)
    PhoH2 proteins are found in a diverse range of organisms. To date little is known about these proteins and the role they play in the organisms in which they reside. PhoH2 is a PIN PhoH domain fusion, and these proteins are ...
  • The evolution of AroA and MurA enzymes from Bacillus

    Oulavallickal, Tifany (University of Waikato, 2016)
    MurA and AroA are important antibacterial targets due to their essentiality in microorganisms and the absence of their respective pathways within mammals. Although much research has focussed on these enzymes, little is ...
  • The structure and function of a bovine salivary protein - BSP30b

    Zhang, Heng (The University of Waikato, 2019)
    The Bovine Salivary Protein 30b (BSP30b) is a member of the palate, lung, and nasal epithelium clone (PLUNC) family which includes human bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein (BPI) and lipopolysaccaride binding ...
  • Time to Diagnosis and Persistence: The Two Major Determinants of Effective Tuberculosis Control

    Ruthe, Alaine Tess (University of Waikato, 2015)
    The greatest challenge confronting effective tuberculosis (TB) eradication is the time to diagnosis, and duration of treatment of chronically infected individuals which represent a pool of infection. In an attempt to help ...
  • Understanding allosteric enzyme regulation using macromolecular rate theory

    Hamill, Carlin James (The University of Waikato, 2020)
    Enzyme catalysed reaction rates produce a curved temperature dependence with a temperature optimum, Topt. Traditionally enzyme temperature dependence has been modelled by the Arrhenius and Eyring-Polanyi equations. Deviations ...
