Site-saturation libraries of the Pseudomonas fluorescens esterase were created targeting three surface positions to increase its thermostability on the basis of the B-factor iterative test principle. All three positions were saturated simultaneously using our recently developed protocol for the design of 'small, but smart' mutant libraries bearing only consensus-like mutations. Hence, the library size could be significantly reduced while ensuring a high hit rate. Variants could be identified… CONTINUE READING
