Dr. Yokoyama’s group has been studying biosynthesis and mechanism of actions of medicinally important cofactors and natural products. One of our focus is C-C bond forming radical SAM enzymes critical for the formation of the carbon skeletons of the metabolites. Our studies are revealing the mechanisms of enzymes, in which highly reactive free radicals are used to construct structurally complex metabolites.
