This section will consider studies that focus on recombinant proteins and enzymes, cell-free protein expression systems, and biocatalysis using immobilized enzymes.
Molecular cloning of a novel bioH gene from an environmental metagenome encoding a carboxylesterase with exceptional tolerance to organic solvents
BioH is one of the key enzymes to produce the precursor pimeloyl-ACP to initiate biotin biosynthesis de novo in bacteria. To date, very few bioH genes have been characterized. In this study, we cloned and identif...
