Evolutionary optimization of computationally designed enzymes: Kemp eliminases of the KE07 series

Khersonsky, Olga; Rothlisberger, Daniela; Dym, Orly; Albeck, Shira; Jackson, Colin; Baker, David; Tawfik, Dan S

Description

Understanding enzyme catalysis through the analysis of natural enzymes is a daunting challenge-their active sites are complex and combine numerous interactions and catalytic forces that are finely coordinated. Study of more rudimentary (wo)man-made enzymes provides a unique opportunity for better understanding of enzymatic catalysis. KE07, a computationally designed Kemp eliminase that employs a glutamate side chain as the catalytic base for the critical proton abstraction step and an apolar...[Show more]
