Catalytic performance of a Class III Old Yellow Enzyme and its cysteine variants

What is it about?

Study of the functional role of the active site cysteine of a class III Old Yellow Enzyme from Rhodococcus opacus 1cp

Why is it important?

Understanding the role of the active site cysteine in class III Old Yellow Enzymes improves our insight into the structure-function relationship and biocatalytic properties of ene reductases,

Perspectives
