Millions of protein database entries are not assigned reliable functions, preventing the full understanding of chemical diversity in living organisms. Here, we describe an integrated strategy for the discovery of various enzymatic activities catalyzed within protein families of unknown or little known function. This approach relies on the definition of a generic reaction conserved within the family, high-throughput enzymatic screening on representatives, structural and modeling investigations… CONTINUE READING
