Dave Gell’s new paper featuring old-school biochemistry

Dec 4, 2019

Molecular Microbiology has now published the epic piece of work spearheaded by ex-lab member Dave Gell, who is now resident at the University of Tasmania. Dave had been approached by local microbiologists who noted that some strains of Haemophilus haemolyticus inhibited the growth of Haemophilus influenzae. Dave heroically purified the factor that caused this inhibition by using culture medium – old school biochemistry! Amazingly, he found that it was a heme-binding protein – his favourite class of proteins! They could hardly have found a better person in the country to characterize this protein if they’d tried! Read all about it here!
