Laboratory of Structural Chemistry

Macromolecular X-ray Crystallography is a technique used to study biological molecules such as proteins, viruses and nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) to an atomic resolution. This high resolution helps elucidate the detailed structure-based mechanism by which these macromolecules carry out their functions in living cells and organisms.


Laboratory description: 

 The Laboratory of Structural Chemistry consists of three sub laboratories and one training part:

 MolBiol - is the laboratory of molecular biology designed for isolation and purification of proteins,

 XtallExp – is the laboratory for crystallization experiments aimed at production of diffractable crystals. Obtained crystals are measured at the synchrotron radiation sources and diffraction data are used for solving of protein structure,

 MolStruct – is the lab for molecular modeling and structural studies following by molecular dynamics studies,

 XtallTraining – offers other colleagues with the interest of crystallization of proteins possibility to crystallize own proteins by themselves or with the help of our specialists

Key activities:

  1. basic research in the field of isolation and purification of proteins and their crystallization
  2. solving of protein structures from diffraction data and structural studies of studied proteins
  3. development and testing of alternative and advanced crystallization techniques
  4. close cooperation with affiliated laboratories in the Czech Republic and abroad
  5. training of others about crystallization of own proteins
  6. teaching of Inorganic chemistry 1 (UCH/100), Inorganic chemistry 2 (UCH/101), Organic chemistry for biology (UCH/032) a Biocrystallization methods (UCH/253) in czech
  7. organization of international courses under auspices of FEBS named FEBS-INSTRUCT practical crystallization course „Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization“
