Jack Kyte

Jack Kyte graduated from Carleton College in 1967, completed his doctoral studies at Harvard University in the laboratory of Guido Guidotti in 1972, and was a postdoctoral fellow with S. Jonathan Singer at the University of California at San Diego. In 1974 he joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at the University of California at San Diego and retired from the department as Professor of Chemistry in 1999. In his research, he studied the structures of Na+/K+-exchanging ATPase and anion carrier using chemical labeling and site-directed immunochemistry. He also studied the mechanism of the activation of the receptor protein-tyrosine kinase for epidermal growth factor and the mechanism of the reaction catalyzed by ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase. He has written two books, Structure in Protein Chemistry and Mechanism in Protein Chemistry.
