Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Our long-term interest is to have a better understanding of the natural antithrombotic pathways and the pathophysiology of vascular thrombosis. We have focused on thrombin, the key enzyme in the blood clotting cascade. Using a library of thrombin mutants generated by site-directed mutagenesis, we have mapped the critical functional sites on thrombin for its interactions with its diverse substrates. We are studying a thrombin-activatable carboxypeptidase that plays a key role in the physiologic regulation of thrombinÂ’'s pro-thrombotic and pro-inflammatory properties. Our goal is to develop new antithrombotic agents and devise new diagnostic tests for vascular thrombotic disorders.
