The exploration of novel proteins via recombination of fragments derived from structurally homologous proteins has enormous potential for medicine and biotechnology. This modular exchange of sequence material puts novel activities, substrate specificities, and stability within reach of a semi-random search. This article takes stock of the growing resource(More)
CYP2C9 is distinguished by a preference for substrates bearing a negative charge at physiological pH. Previous studies have suggested that CYP2C9 residues R97 and K72 may play roles in determining preference for anionic substrates by interaction at the active site or in the access channel. The aim of the present study was to assess the role of these two(More)
BACKGROUND Designing novel proteins with site-directed recombination has enormous prospects. By locating effective recombination sites for swapping sequence parts, the probability that hybrid sequences have the desired properties is increased dramatically. The prohibitive requirements for applying current tools led us to investigate machine learning to(More)
