Fluorescent proteins: modeling photophysical and photochemical properties

We study fluorescent proteins with different chromophoric groups that together cover the entire visible and near-infrared spectrum. These include proteins such as green fluorescent protein and its red analogues, flavin-containing proteins and phytochromes.

Mechanisms of enzymatic reactions

We study chemical reactions in enzymes that hydrolyze nucleotide triphosphates, processes in zinc-dependent enzymes involved in human nervous activity, as well as providing bacterial resistance to antibiotics, and many others.

Optogenetic systems

Optogenetic multidomain complexes make it possible to control processes in cells as a result of exposure to light. In particular, we are studying bacterial photoactivated adenylate cyclases

Rotational-vibrational spectroscopy of molecules

One of the groups in the QCMM laboratory is studying the vibrational and vibrational-rotational dynamics of small and medium-sized molecules based on completely non-empirical methods of quantum mechanics, such as perturbation theory. 


Topics related to coronavirus

We are studying the enzymatic processes that form the basis of the functioning of the SARS-CoV2 virus, in particular the mechanism of substrate specificity of the main protease of this virus, and are developing new compounds - potential therapeutic agents to combat it.


The laboratory has created a database systematizing the accumulated results of the world scientific community on the study of the mechanisms of enzymatic processes.
