Understanding Chemotherapeutic Drug Targets

Nozomi conducts research on a protein that is essential for DNA synthesis, repair, and replication. She explains how this protein is in equilibrium between an active and an inactive form, and how discovering strategies to lock the protein in the inactive conformation could lead to treatments for cancer and/or could be used in the creation of new antibiotics.
