Kristi Wynn- BS Biology May 2012 As a research assistant, Kristi has been characterizing the role of OxyR during oxidative stress in Caulobacter crescentus. She helped demonstrate that the transcription factor is necessary for the induction of a catalase enzyme after exposure to hydrogen peroxide. She has optimized the oxidative stress assay in C. crescentus, using varying concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and different growth conditions.
