CIC bioGUNE researchers develop a protein capable of catalysing a chemical reaction unprecedented in nature

The work, published in the journal Nature Chemistry, describes a zinc-binding protein which accelerates the reaction rate to levels higher than those of natural enzymes The research shows, for the first time, that proteins containing transition metals can be designed by computer simulation to catalyse chemical processes previously unknown in nature, with a high degree...
