Molecular basis of the evolution of new protein functions: Kemp elimination and phosphoryl transfer reactions

Hong, Nan-Sook

Description

This is a series of investigations into the molecular basis of the evolution of new protein functions. The broad objective of this work was to determine exactly how a series of single amino acid mutations, typical of an evolutionary trajectory, can result in dramatic changes in catalytic activity, specificity and protein solubility. Various strategies were employed to achieve this aim, including analysis of existing literature concerning the various models and...[Show more]
