Bachelor in Biomolecular and Physical Sciences at University of São Paulo (2015) where has developed two scientific undergraduate project in the Structural Biology Laboratory of the Physics Institute of São Carlos (LBEst / IFSC-USP), both supported by FAPESP, in which developed the ability to expression and purification of recombinant proteins, biophysical techniques and through these the determination of protein-protein interactions. In 2014, a Merit Scholar fellowship was received from University of Sao Paulo with a period of exchange at Università degli Studi di Roma - Tor Vergata. In 2019, she has finished her PhD at Physics Institute of São Carlos with the project for study of macromolecular complex interactions of selenocysteine pathway from E. coli and N. gruberi. Has experience in Biophysics and protein Biochemistry, with an emphasis on Molecular Biology and Macromolecules Crystallography. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Naegleria fowleri, commonly known as "brain-eating amoeba", is the only species of Naegleria known to infect humans, resulting in the condition known as Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis (PAM). Despite its medical relevance it is still an organism with little attention. Our group described the presence of the selenocystein synthesis pathway in N. gruberi, a nonpathogenic species used a...
The existence of a greater variety of amino acids encoded by the genetic code has stimulated studies on the mechanisms of synthesis, recognition and incorporation of these residues in nascent polypeptide chains. As an example, we can highlight the specific incorporation of the amino acid selenocysteine, a co-translational event guided by the UGA codon. In bacteria, this pathway is forme...
Schistosomiasis is a neglected disease that doesn't attract large investments of the pharmaceutical companies in the search and development for new potential drugs. The enzyme Deoxycytidylate deaminase (DEOC) is one of the enzymes that belongs to the thymidylate cycle of the parasite Schistosoma mansoni. The thymidylate cycle is an essential metabolic pathway of the parasite and the enz...
