El-Maghrabi, Raafat           Metabolic regulation of gene expression. First, delineating the factors involved in regulating expression of 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase/fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase genes; the products of these genes are responsible for modulating rates of glycolysis in almost all cell types. A second interest of the lab deals with the structure/function relationships of the products of these genes, the enzymes themselves, with respect to reciprocal regulation of the two opposing activities by phosphorylation, and the interaction of the two domains.
