Engineering substrate recognition in catalysis by cytochrome P450cam.
We have a continuing interest in applying the current knowledge of cytochrome P450cam substrate recognition to engineer the enzyme for the biotransformation of unnatural substrates with the long-term aim of applications in the synthesis of fine chemicals and bioremediation of environmental contaminants. Comparisons of the structure of target substrates with that of camphor, the natural substrate, led to the design of active-site mutants with greatly enhanced activity for the oxidation of chlo...Expand abstract
