Improving biocatalyst performance by integrating statistical methods into protein engineering.


Directed evolution and rational design were used to generate active variants of toluene-4-monooxygenase (T4MO) on 2-phenylethanol (PEA), with the aim of producing hydroxytyrosol, a potent antioxidant. Due to the complexity of the enzymatic system-four proteins encoded by six genes-mutagenesis is labor-intensive and time-consuming. Therefore, the statistical… (More)
