Kinetic regularities of the enzymatic acyl group transfer reactions have been studied using ampicillin synthesis catalyzed by E. coli penicillin acylase as an example. It was shown that ampicillin synthesis proceeds through the formation of an acylenzyme-nucleophile complex capable of...

A semi-random mutagenesis approach was followed to increase the performance of penicillin acylase PAS2 in the kinetically controlled synthesis of ampicillin from 6-aminopenicillanic acid (6-APA) and activated D-phenylglycine derivatives. We directed changes in amino acid residues to positions close to...
