Martijn Bekker (1979) was born in Amstelveen (The Netherlands). He started his studies in biology in 1997 at the University of Amsterdam, and graduated in 2003 with specializations in molecular microbiology and in immunology. The internships during his undergraduate studies were carried out in the labs of Prof. dr. B. Oudega (VU, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and Prof. dr. F. Heffron (OHSU, Portland, Oregon, USA).
He continued with his graduate studies in 2003 in the Laboratory for Molecular Microbial
Challenge: Comparative analyses, as demonstrated by comparative genomics and bioinformatics, are extremely powerful for (i) transfer of information from (experimentally) well-studied organisms to the other organisms, and (ii) when coupled to functional and phenotypic information, insight in the relative importance of components to the observed differences and simalities. The central principle of this proposal is that important aspects of the functional differences between organisms derive not

The Lactate dehydrogenases (LDH) are key metabolic enzymes in lactic acid bacteria (LAB). The LDH ( E.C. 18.104.22.168) catalyzes the reaction of pyruvate and NADH into lactate and NAD+.We have carried out an experimental and computational study of the effects of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate (FBP), phosphate (Pi) and ionic strength (NaCl concentration) on 3 LDHs from 3 LABs studied at pH 6 and pH 7.
