PhD Research Projects Oct 2002- 2008:

Investigation of interaction between novel anti-TB derivatives of 1, 3, 4- thiadiazoles and artificial membranes. In this investigation, considering the importance of the process of antibacterial drug uptake by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis and the way the agents enter the cell, we have studied the effects of novel antituberculosis thiadiazole derivatives on artificial lipid bilayers by voltage clamp technique.In addition, the effect of propyl and ethyl ester derivatives on the well characterized OmpF (Outer membrane protein F) channel reconstituted in artificial bilayers studied at molecular level. Finally, in order to understand events at molecular level, we have carried out molecular dynamic simulations of POPC (1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-phosphatidylcholine) bilayers containing methyl and propyl ester thiadiazoles.
