Compared to (S)-selective amine transaminase ((S)-AT), the (R)-selective counterpart ((R)-AT) has been less studied. As such, a simplified “Motif Sequence Blast” search (Höhne et al. Nat Chem Biol 6:807–813, 2010) was carried out to identify new (R)-ATs from the protein databases. The combined conserved sequence motifs of (R)-ATs based on the previous in(More)
Production of chiral amines and unnatural amino-acid using ω-transaminase can be achieved by kinetic resolution and asymmetric synthesis, thus ω-transaminase is of great importance in the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates. By genomic data mining, a putative ω-transaminase gene hbp was found in Burkholderia phytofirmans PsJN. The gene was cloned and(More)
