As a 2015 Khorana Scholar, Charul Agrawal did her research at John Hopkins University under Professor Anthony Leung, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. A few weeks ago, Dr. Leung emailed WINStep Forward that Charul’s work on ADP-ribosulation had been published in the journal Nucleic Acids Research as a six-page article titled, “ADPriobAB: The database of ADP-ribosylated proteins.” ADP-ribosylation is a term that is used to define adding ADP-ribose proteins after translation. The work that Charul’s lab did was describe a newly created database of these proteins, explaining the structure of this publication. Following that in this article, they wrote about how they used that to find the sites of modification and had results showing in a high amount of these proteins in non-membranous RNA granules. The article was posted in the middle of this past July 2016.

WINStep Forward is excited that Khorana-Bose Scholars can make such an impact during their three month internship in the United States!
