Biography

Patrick Kobina Arthur is currently working as a Lecturer in Department of Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology, University of Ghana.

Research Interest

Isolation and characterization of novel bioactive compounds from organisms originating from tropical-equatorial biodiversity hotspots, namely: Basidiomycetes (Wood Decaying Fungi), Ascomycetes (Marine Endophytic Fungi) Microalgae Actinomycetes Targeted Proteomics (Selected Reaction Monitoring) of Mycobacteria (in collaboration with the Aebersold Lab, ETH-Zurich, Switzerland). Chemical proteomics of target proteins in human parasites to specific novel bioactives and vice versa as well as corresponding off-target cellular proteins in humans Comparative and functional proteomics on target proteins & specific novel bioactives Clinical proteomics of novel bioactives, identification of biomarkers for in vivo activities Protein Biochemistry - Establish a library of 100 enzymes for molecular biology applications Molecular and structural dynamics of ribonucleoprotein complexes.
