Analytical methods at the Department attract international attention
A PhD student from University of South Bohemia (Czech Republic), Eugenia Sancho Santos, visited the Department of Molecular Sciences in August to gain insights into the methods to measure catalytic activities of cytochrome P450 enzymes.
- Our group in Czech Republic is working on the impact of water pollution on the physiological responses of fish and cytochrome P450 activities are crucial in such experiments, said Eugenia Sancho Santos.
- We are pleased to be recognized by international scientific community for having these well-functioning methods, said Galia Zamaratskaia. In our laboratory we routinely use methods to measure activity of major enzymes involved in xenobiotic metabolism.
During the visit, Eugenia discussed how to design methods to study regulation of cytochrome P450 activities by bioactive compounds from food and environmental pollutants.
- I am impressed by work you do at SLU and I hope to continue the collaboration, said Eugenia.
