Oxygreen Tools – Effective redesign of enzymes for green chemistry

Life is based on the ability of living systems to perform an enormous array of chemical reactions. This ability is made possible by the existence of enzymes, which can achieve rates that are simply beyond the limits of “classical” chemical methods. Such a terrific catalytic power is coupled to an exquisite degree of specificity: enzymes are extremely effective in dealing only with certain molecules and in avoiding the generation of unwanted byproducts. These features make enzymes obviously attractive for industrial applications. However often enzymes do need improvements before their use in industry is feasible. That is where we come in; Oxygreen services provides expertise for not only Enzyme engineering, but also Enzyme collection & Application testing, Enzyme discovery & Production, Enzyme Kinetics & Structures and Enzyme assays & Screening. This expertise was developed during our work for the Oxygreen project. Although in the Oxygreen project work was done on oxygenating enzymes, in particular Baeyer-Villiger Monooxygenases, non-heme iron dioxygenases and P450 monooxygenases, most of the tools are useful for other types of enzymes as well.
