ROBOX partner paper on “A REDUCTIVE AMINASE FROM Aspergillus oryzae”

Reductive amination is one of the most important methods for the synthesis of chiral amines. The paper from ROBOX partner UNIMAN “A reductive aminase from Aspergillus oryzae” is attracting attention. This enzyme can be applied to ROBOX alcohol and ketone products to create cascade reactions of interest for industry.

Living organism with synthetic DNA

A interesting advance in biotechnology  TSRI Scientists Create First Stable Semisynthetic Organism LA JOLLA, CA – January 23, 2017 – Life’s genetic code has only ever contained four natural bases. These bases pair up to form two “base pairs”—the rungs of the DNA ladder—and they have simply been rearranged to create bacteria and butterflies,…

Thermostability of P450s for Industrial Use

Good review of this essentiial feature of Cytochrome P450s for application Highlights Thermostability is a desirable feature for using P450s in industrial processes The structures of four P450s from thermophiles have been characterized to date. P450s from thermophiles tend to be shorter overall than those from mesophiles. Extended salt-bridged and aromatic networks may stabilize the…
