Welcome to the Stroupe Lab

How do bacteria reduce sulfur for building amino acids and cofactors?

How do bacteria synthesize siroheme, a unique tetrapyrrole used for sulfur metabolism?

The Stroupe lab is interested in answering these questions using an interdisciplinary biochemical and structural biological approach.

The active site of Sulfite Reductase Hemoprotein with sulfite bound to the active site siroheme (Smith and Stroupe, 2012)
The flavoprotein component of sulfite reductase is an extended diflavin reductase (Tavolieri, et al, 2019)
