November 19, 2017

Bacteria from extreme environments are really great places to look for super stable enzymes and enzymes that work in conditions that can be useful for industrial applications.

 

 

 

Our new joint publication with the Easton Lab from the Australian National University shows off a series of carbamate kinases that work at pH of up to 11 and temperatures of over 80C.  These enzymes can be used to make carbamoyl phosphate - a highly reactive molecule that can be used to make amino acids, heterocycles and other useful organic compounds.
