Production of propane and other short-chain alkanes by structure-based engineering of ligand specificity in aldehyde-deformylating oxygenase
Chembiochem (2013) 14 p.1204-1208
Biocatalytic propane production: structure-based engineering of aldehyde-deformylating oxygenase improves specificity for short- and medium-chain-length aldehydes and enhances the propane generation in whole-cell biotransformations. This presents new opportunities for developing biocatalytic modules for the production of volatile "drop-in" biofuels.
