With the aim to understand biological processes and their regulation, and to use the ensuing knowledge in biomedical sciences and biotechnology, we use kinetic, spectroscopic, structural, and protein engineering methods to clarify the mechanisms of action and regulation of selected proteins and enzymes, among which are flavin-dependent oxidoreductases.
