NWO awards a Vici grant to Professor Marco Fraaije after an administrative reconsideration. The grant has been awarded for the project ‘Vitamins for proteins: equipping enzymes with new cofactors’ which only just missed the selection in 2012.

‘Vitamins for proteins: equipping enzymes with new cofactors’

Every life form is dependent on enzymes. Most enzymes contain an essential auxiliary matter, a so-called co-factor, for their functioning. Recently, it has been discovered that many bacteria use an unusual cofactor. The researchers will study the enzymes that are dependent on these cofactor, in view of new industrial applications and development of new antibiotics.
