Probing the mechanisms for the selectivity and promiscuity of methyl parathion hydrolase

Purg, Miha; Pabis, Anna; Baier, Florian; Tokuriki, Nobuhiko; Jackson, Colin; Kamerlin, Shina Caroline Lynn


Diverse organophosphate hydrolases have convergently evolved the ability to hydrolyse man-made organophosphates. Thus, these enzymes are attractive model systems for studying the factors shaping enzyme functional evolution. Methyl parathion hydrolase (MPH) is an enzyme from the metallo-β-lactamase superfamily, which hydrolyses a wide range of organophosphate, aryl ester and lactone substrates. In addition, MPH demonstrates metal-ion-dependent selectivity patterns. The origins of this remain...[Show more]
