Evolving an Enzyme for Industrial Application

Alfaro Chávez, Ana Lucía


Enzymes are very efficient biocatalysts. While there are many examples of applications of enzymes in commercial or industrial processes, the true potential of enzyme technology is yet to be reached. Protein engineering, particularly directed evolution, is a powerful tool for tailoring enzymes for specific tasks. This thesis is concerned with the use of directed evolution to enhance the physical and catalytic properties of a lipase, Lip 3 that was originally...[Show more]
