Improving the catalytic activity of Candida antarctica lipase B by circular permutation.

Abstract

Lipases (EC 3.1.1.3) play an important role in asymmetric biocatalysis. Tailoring these enzymes to novel, unnatural substrates is one of the primary challenges of protein engineering. We have used circular permutation, the intramolecular relocation of a protein's N- and C-termini, to explore the effects of altered active site accessibility and protein… (More)
