Effects of transition metal ions on the catalytic activity of carbonic anhydrase mimics
Abstract Many carbonic anhydrase (CA)–mimetic catalysts have active sites composed of a Zn ion coordinated with multiple nitrogens of azacyclic compounds. In this study, some divalent transitionExpand
A de novo designed metalloenzyme for the hydration of CO2.
To test the current mastery of nature's approach to catalysis, a Zn(II) metalloenzyme was prepared using de novo design and catalyzes the hydration of CO2 better than any small molecule model of carbonic anhydrase and with an efficiency within 1400-fold of the fastest carbonicAnhydrase isoform.
