Latest Enzyme kinetics Stories
Scientists have sequenced the genomes of nearly 6,900 organisms, but they know the functions of only about half of the protein-coding genes thus far discovered.
It is rare that an unpublished piece of research or theory remains significant after half a century.
Structure will help MU researchers determine function, develop drugs to inhibit enzyme.
Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is one of medicine's most vexing challenges. In a study described in Nature Chemical Biology, researchers from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University are developing a new generation of antibiotic compounds that do not provoke bacterial resistance.
By Brack, Antje Hellmann, Nadja; Decker, Heinz ABSTRACT Tyrosinases catalyze hydroxylation of monophenols to o- diphenols and their subsequent oxidation to o-quinones, whereas catecholoxidases catalyze only the latter reaction.
Scientists succeed in designing artificial enzymes that also undergo 'evolution in a test tube'
