The relationship between structure and thermostability of a nitrile hydratase from Goebacillus pallidus RAPc8
(University of the Western Cape, 2008)
Nitrile hydratases (NHases) are very important biocatalysts for the enzymatic conversion of nitriles to industrially important amides such as acrylamide and nicotinamide. An “ideal” NHase should fulfil several essential ...
Screening for subtate tolerant Geobacillus pallidus RAPc8 nitrile hydratase
(University of the Western Cape, 2009)
In this study G. pallidus RAPc8 NHase mutants were screened for reduced substrate inhibition compared to the wild type enzyme. Wild type and mutant enzymes were expressed and purified using hydrophobic interaction ...
Engineering homoaromatic substrate specificity into aliphatic-specific Geobacillus pallidus RAPc8 nitrile hydratase
(University of the Western Cape, 2007)
Geobacillus pallidus RAPc8 is a thermophilic nitrile-degrading isolate, obtained from thermal sediment samples of a New Zealand hot spring. The G. pallidus RAPc8 NHase gene has been cloned and expressed in E. coli. The ...
