A detailed understanding of the catalytic mechanism of enzymes is an important step toward improving their activity for use in biotechnology. In this paper, crystal soaking experiments and X-ray crystallography were used to analyse the mechanism of the Agrobacterium radiobacter phosphotriesterase, OpdA, an enzyme capable of detoxifying a broad range of organophosphate pesticides. The structures of OpdA complexed with ethylene glycol and the product of dimethoate hydrolysis, dimethyl...[Show more]
