Decarboxylation and Racemization of Unnatural Compounds Using Artificial Enzymes Derived from Arylmalonate Decarboxylase

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Protein engineering has emerged as a powerful tool for engineering enzymes with new functions. We have been investigating an arylmalonate decarboxylase that acts on unnatural arylmalonates to give (R)-α-arylpropionates (profens). This chapter evaluates the potential use of directed evolution and rational design in completely changing the function of the decarboxylase to an artificial racemase and (S)-selective decarboxylase. The variants are useful biocatalysts for producing optically active profens.
