 Main research topics:

Storage proteins of legume seeds (lupin) and cereals (wheat) characterization, relationships between structure and function, use of probe as indicator of technological quality, protein-polysaccharides interaction, lipid-bran interaction, thermal modification of protein induced by heat treatment in model system and manufacturers, modification of the gliadin toxicity for celiac. Use of enzyme as probe of oxidative stress (GSH and Rhodanese-like enzymes) on bacteria grown on phenanthrene. Rhodanese-like involvement in the ROS removal in the glutathione regeneration pathway in Azotobacter vinelandii. Protein expression in Azotobacter vinelandii biofilm in different oxidative stress. Relationships between proteolytic enzymes and vanadium in ascidiacea (Phallusia mamillata, Ciona intestinalis, Halocynthia papillosa, Microcosmus sulcatus). Interaction study between mycrocistin of Mycrocistis aeruginosa and enzymes. Photosynthetic pigments and carotenoids in benthic algae and metal oxidative stress in polluted streams (As).
