Ancestral Sequence Reconstruction leads to Robust Enzymes

Ancestral Sequence Reconstruction leads to Robust Enzymes ROBOX has been highly focussed on developing commercial biocatalysts that requires robust enzymes that can withstand elevated temperatures and long incubations as well as stability to organic substrates and solvents. In an interesting approach to this problem Elizabeth Gillam and coworkers have used ancestral reconstruction of pre-Cambrian enzymes…

ROBOX ENZYME AVAILABILITY

One of the problems facing potential users wishing to replicate enzyme technology is the availability of the enzyes – our partner RUG now make some ROBOX robust enzymes available: –Eugenol oxidase (EUGO) Robust oxidase acting on phenolic compounds details in Nguyen et al. (2016) Chembiochem. 17:1359-1366 –Thermostable cyclohexanone monooxygenase (TmCHMO) Robust Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenase acting on…

ROBOX at Novel Enzymes Conference

The 6th international Novel Enzymes conference Darmstadt has recently completed with four speakers presenting results from from ROBOX

Martin Schurman from INNOSYN presents about practical applications of ROBOX technology

ROBOX also supplied two sessions chairs as well including our coordinator Marco Fraaje (below).

ROBOX at “Day of Chemistry”

On Saturday 6th of October ROBOX presented at the Day of Chemistry at Chemelot in Geleen (NL) and Maastricht University presented to an open general audience. In total there were 2500 visitors and the ROBOX attracted interest in the area of biotechnology. poster Dr Katrien Bernaerts presents ROBOX to a wider audience. Chemelot stands for…
