In this study we have replaced all 13 methionine residues in the cytochrome P450 BM‐3 heme domain (463 amino acids) with the isosteric methionine analog norleucine. This experiment has provided a means of testing the functional limits of globally incorporating into an enzyme an unnatural amino acid in place of its natural analog, and also an efficient way to test whether inactivation during peroxide‐driven P450 catalysis involves methionine oxidation. Although there was no increase in the… Expand
Influence of global fluorination on chloramphenicol acetyltransferase activity and stability
TLDR
Circular dichroism studies reveal that although fluorination greatly improves the secondary structure of CAT, a large structural destabilization upon increased levels of TFL incorporation occurs at elevated temperatures, suggesting that enhanced secondary structure afforded by TFL incorporate does not necessarily lead to an improvement in stability.
