  1. 1. Towards Understanding of Selectivity & Enantioconvergence of an Epoxide Hydrolase

    Author : Åsa Janfalk Carlsson; Mikael Widersten; Uwe T. Bornscheuer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Epoxide hydrolase; Epoxide; Enantioselectivity; Regioselectivity; Enantioconvergence; Crystal structures; Biocatalysis; Immobilization; Transient kinetics; CASTing; Directed evolution; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Epoxide hydrolase I from Solanum tuberosum (StEH1) and isolated variants thereof has been studied for mapping structure-function relationships with the ultimate goal of being able to in silico predict modifications needed for a certain activity or selectivity. To solve this, directed evoultion using CASTing and an ISM approach was applied to improve selectivity towards either of the enantiomeric product diols from (2,3-epoxypropyl)benzene (1). READ MORE

    Abstract : The work leading to this thesis has provided additional information and novel knowledge concerning structure-function relationship in the potato epoxide hydrolase. Epoxide hydrolases are enzymes catalyzing the hydrolysis of epoxides to yield the corresponding vicinal diols. READ MORE

    Abstract : Epoxides are three-membered cyclic ethers formed in the metabolism of foreign substances and as endogenous metabolites. Epoxide hydrolases (EHs) are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of epoxides to yield the corresponding diols. READ MORE
