Enhancement of the activity of l-aspartase from Escherichia coli W by directed evolution.


l-Aspartase was modified by directed evolution. After four rounds of error-prone PCR and three rounds of DNA shuffling, an evolved enzyme purified from the final round showed a 28-fold increased k(cat)/K(m) and 4.6-fold decreased K(m). The thermostability and stable pH range were also enhanced. The DNA sequence of the evolved aspartase gene showed seven… (More)
