Many natural enzymes can be found in nature that contain a metal ion. These enzymes have the potential for becoming new drugs and further biotechnology, but not all of the metalloenzymes' functions are fully understood. Through our synthetic model Due Ferri Single Chain proteins, we can model our proteins with a metal ion introduced and bound to try and mimic the natural proteins found in nature. For this summer, we will be using zinc as our metal ion.
