Researchers synthesize proteins that control enzyme activity [Registered]

“This is the first time that synthetic accessory molecules have been engineered to change the specificity of an enzyme in order to achieve a desired end-product,” said Koide. “In this paper, we demonstrated their efficacy on sugars, but one can envision applications of this concept with enzymes acting on other types of molecules such as lipids and peptides – there are literally hundreds of enzymes currently used in industry and millions that are potentially useful.”…
