Through protein engineering, designer enzymes can perform their biocatalytic function in these non-natural conditions, creating unique and efficient processes that could not otherwise be envisaged.
The revision of literature showed that CB have been explored mainly in the construction of biocatalytic or enzymatic biosensors, dedicated to the determination of glucose, hydrogen peroxide, food additives, and environmental contaminants.
Speciality enzyme manufacturer, Biocatalysts, has recently partnered with a food ingredient company that has developed a novel biocatalytic route for synthesis of a high value flavour compound.
Included are stereoselective oxidation and reduction methods; stereoselective additions; cyclizations; metatheses and different types of rearrangements; asymmetric transition-metal-catalyzed, organocatalyzed, and biocatalytic reactions; methods for the formation of carbon-heteroatom and heteroatom-heteroatom bonds like asymmetric hydroamination and reduction amination, carboamination and alkylative cyclization, cycloadditions with carbon-heteroatom bond formation, and stereoselective halogenations; and methods for the formation of carbon-sulfur and carbon-phosphorus bonds and asymmetric sulfoxidation.
This library has allowed for the direct screening and characterization of each enzyme with several ketoesters and ketonitrile substrates [7, 8] and has led to biocatalytic products with better and opposite stereoselectivities than what has been reported by wild type bakers' yeast.
