Bringing artificial enzymes closer to nature

Scientists at the University of Basel, ETH Zurich, and NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering have developed an artificial metalloenzyme that catalyses a reaction inside of cells without equivalent in nature. This could be a prime example for creating new non-natural metabolic pathways inside living cells, as reported today in Nature. (Mehr in: Pressemitteilungen – idw – Informationsdienst Wissenschaft)
