Over the last decade, amino acid dehydrogenases such as alanine dehydrogenase (Ala DH), leucine dehydrogenase (Leu DH), and phenylalanine dehydrogenase (Phe DH) have been applied to the enantiomer-specific synthesis and analysis of various amino acids. In perticular, amino acid dehydrogenases from thermophiles have received much attention because of their high stability. Their productivity was enhanced and the purification facilitated by the gene cloning. The advances in biotechnological… CONTINUE READING
