Professor Kim Kimoon’s (CHEM) research team developed a refining process that allows the extraction of protein of high-purity and high-quality by using cucurbit[n]urils. Cucurbiturils are molecules in the shape of an empty pumpkin. They act as baskets for storing smaller molecules and combine with one that is of the right pair. By using these features, the team developed a ‘protein fishing’ technique to lure typical proteins just as baits are used during fishing. Prof. Kim said this research would allow deeper analysis of diseases such as cancer by separating particular proteins. The paper was chosen as “Hot Paper” in Angewandte Chemie International Edition, a globally recognized journal in the field of Chemistry.
