Evolution of New Catalytic Mechanisms for Xenobiotic Hydrolysis

Sugrue, Elena


Several different evolutionary processes allow enzymes to gain new catalytic activity, or enhance existing properties. Xenobiotic-degrading enzymes are often used to study the molecular basis for the evolution of new catalytic activity, as the substrates are often synthetic and comparatively new to the biosphere, the directionality of the evolutionary process is generally known and the evolved protein can often be traced back to a specific...[Show more]
