The Eaton group develops new electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) methods and instrumentation to address significant biochemical and chemical problems. A major current emphasis is on EPR methods to improve sensitivity and solve biomedical problems. The conventional approach to detection of signals from unpaired electrons detected only a small fraction of the intensity on each slow pass through the spectrum. By scanning much faster and changing the detection hardware we have achieved dramatic

Our research focuses on the application of biophysical magnetic resonance techniques such as site-directed spin labeling (SDSL) EPR spectroscopy, as well as NMR and more recently ODNP spectroscopy, to study macromolecular flexibility and conformational changes related to the proper biological function or pathology of macromolecules. Areas of interest encompass proteins and biomembranes, and more recently our efforts are extending to large RNAs and novel stimuli-responsive polymers.

Research Areas:
catalysis, enzymes, membrane proteins, nitroxides, soluble proteins, transition metals

Our lab's focus is on structure/function studies of enzymes using a variety of EPR techniques, with an emphasis on reactive intermediates. We investigate enzymes which utilize amino acid based radicals for catalysis (radical enzymes) as well as systems which lack endogenous paramagnetic species (through the use of spin-labels). Our efforts in instrumentation development are primarily in the areas of high frequency EPR and rapid freeze quench technology.
