A short Research Highlight about a recent publication from Prof. Gerrit Poelarends and co-workers has been published in the latest issue (Vol 2, November 2019) of Nature Catalysis. The original article describes how they applied protein engineering to construct a biocatalyst for the enantioselective synthesis of chiral synthons for artificial dipeptide sweeteners such as neotame and advantame, which have wide‐ranging applications in the food industry.
Here is the sharable link for the reading the Research Highlight.
