Oligomerization triggered by foldon: a simple method to enhance the catalytic efficiency of lichenase and xylanase

Abstract

BACKGROUND Effective and simple methods that lead to higher enzymatic efficiencies are highly sough. Here we proposed a foldon-triggered trimerization of the target enzymes with significantly improved catalytic performances by fusing a foldon domain at the C-terminus of the enzymes via elastin-like polypeptides (ELPs). The foldon domain comprises 27… (More)
