The enzymes in this kit (EZK003) have been selected for their activity on a wide selection of substrates and in a wide range of pH, to encounter the different synthetic needs of our customers.
Enantiopure alcohols can be obtained using our ADHs. (R) and (S)-enantiomers of acetophenone and its derivatives can be accessed by using these ADHs as well as racemic mixtures. Also, some of our enzymes have been specifically selected for their ability to reduce ketones in bulky substrates, such as benzophenone derivatives.
This kit contains 17 alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) enzymes for the reduction of ketones and aldehydes to the corresponding alcohols. The enzymes in this kit belong to different protein folds (i.e. short-chain ADHs, zinc-containing ADHs, aldo-ketoreductases), both from prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Also included are enzymes identified from genomic and metagenomic samples and engineered enzymes.
