Modification of the fatty acid specificity of cytochrome P450 BM-3 from Bacillus megaterium by directed evolution: a validated assay
Cytochrome P450 BM-3 (CYP102) catalyzes the subterminal hydroxylation of fatty acids with a chain length of 12–22 carbons. The paper focuses on the regioselectivity and substrate specificity of theExpand

Stereoselective epoxidation of the last double bond of polyunsaturated fatty acids by human cytochromes P450
Cytochromes P450 (CYPs) metabolize polyunsaturated long-chain fatty acids (PUFA-LC) to several classes of oxygenated metabolites. Through use of human recombinant CYPs, we recently showed thatExpand

Directed laccase evolution for improved ionic liquid resistance
In nature, the biodegradation of lignin is a challenging process since lignin is highly cross-linked and poorly water-soluble. Laccases (EC 1.10.3.2, benzenediol: oxygen oxidoreductase) play a keyExpand

Grafting PNIPAAm from β-barrel shaped transmembrane nanopores.
The research on protein-polymer conjugates by grafting from the surface of proteins has gained significant interest in the last decade. While there are many studies with globular proteins, membraneExpand

Structural Insight into Enantioselective Inversion of an Alcohol Dehydrogenase Reveals a "Polar Gate" in Stereorecognition of Diaryl Ketones.
Diaryl ketones are important building blocks for synthesizing pharmaceuticals and are generally regarded as “difficult-to-reduce” ketones due to the large steric hindrance of their two bulky aromaticExpand

Ionic liquid effects on the activity of monooxygenase P450 BM-3
P450 monooxygenases oxidize a broad range of substrates including fatty acids, alcohols, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons which are often poorly soluble in water and have Km values in theExpand

In Vitro Double Oxidation of n-Heptane with Direct Cofactor Regeneration
A novel concept for the direct oxidation of cycloalkanes to the corresponding cyclic ketones in a one-pot synthesis in water with molecular oxygen as sole oxidizing agent was reported recently. BasedExpand

A Whole Cell E. coli Display Platform for Artificial Metalloenzymes: Poly(phenylacetylene) Production with a Rhodium–Nitrobindin Metalloprotein
Whole cell catalysis is, in many cases, a prerequisite for the cost-effective production of chemicals by biotechnological means. Synthetic metal catalysts for bioorthogonal reactions can beExpand

Prearranged glycosides, 2. Intramolecular glycosylation of prearranged saccharides as a novel strategy for the construction of β‐L‐rhamnosidic linkages
Disaccharides containing a β-L-rhamnosyl residue were prepared by a novel intramolecular glycosylation strategy. Thus, suitably benzyl-protected L-rhamnosyl donors (ethyl and phenyl 1-thiorhamnosideExpand
