BIO-341 Enzymes and Metabolism

Coordinator: Dr. Juan Peragón Sánchez (jperagon [arroba] ujaen [punto] es)

Research group engaged in the study of different aspects of cellular metabolism and its regulation. It has recently focused on researching the presence and biological properties of phenolic and triterpenic compounds present in the olive tree and its products. The fruits and leafs of the olive tree are the fundamental subject of our research, as is the ripening process of the olive. The knowledge obtained from our work has the essential purpose of raising the value of products such as table olives and olive oil on which a good part of our province’s economy rests.
