The Ene-Reductase Toolbox is growing
Ppo-Er1, a further member to the newly identified subgroup III of the old yellow enzyme family is characterized in our recent publication “Characterization of the Novel Ene Reductase Ppo-Er1 from Paenibacillus Polymyxa” in “Catalysts”.
The article “Characterization of the Novel Ene Reductase Ppo-Er1 from Paenibacillus Polymyxa” by David Aregger, Christin Peters and Rebecca M. Buller published in “catalysts” is part of a Special Issue on Novel Enzyme and Whole-Cell Biocatalysts.
Ene reductases catalyze the stereoselective reduction of activated C=C double bonds and are important tools in the synthesis of valuable chiral products. The novel ene reductase from Paenibacillus polymyxa (Ppo-Er1) belongs to the recently identified subgroup III of the old yellow enzyme family and is one of the first enzymes of this group where a detailed biophysical characterization is available.
