Enzymes working in reverse

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Lyases are enzymes that catalyse the breaking of chemical bonds. Now, reversing this reaction towards carbon-nitrogen bond formation allows for the synthesis of various chiral aminocarboxylic acids such as the potential antibiotic co-drug aspergillomarasmine A.
