Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply computational protein design (CPD) to engineer polysaccharide monooxygenases (PMOs) for improved thermostability, so that a cocktail of PMOs and key cellulases will more efficiently convert lignocellulolosic biomass to… More

Computational design of a Novel dehydratase for renewable fuels and chemicals

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Research Institution:
California Institute of TechNology
RI Contact:
Abstract:
The reaction catalyzed by dihydroxyacid dehydratase is a key bottleneck in the biosynthesis of isobutanol from glucose, caused in part by extremely inefficient maturation of the catalytically essential Fe-S cofactor (~1%) when the dehydratase is recombinantly expressed. One strategy to relieve this… More
