Research interests

Naina aims to gain a comprehensive understanding of thrombolytic agents and enhance their thrombolytic properties through the rational design of mutants. She studies potential staphylokinase (SAK) mutants, screening them, and analyzing their performance. She employs the hydrogen-deuterium exchange method coupled with mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) to investigate the dynamics of structural changes in SAK apo form and holo form with interaction partners. Additionally, she involves in the preparation and purification of recombinant proteins used for HDX-MS. She also conducts biochemical experiments to evaluate the protein's fibrin selectivity, immunogenicity, half-life, and catalytic activity and compares the experimental data with molecular dynamics simulations.
