Microbial lysyl oxidases: New Biocatalytic Tools for Chemical Biology, Materials Science And Beyond

Time: 11:30 am
day: Day One


  • Learn how Lysyl oxidases (LOXs) catalyze the oxidative deamination of lysyl and hydroxylysyl groups, generating reactive aldehydes that undergo intermolecular cross-linking reactions
  • Discover how these enzymes are attractive candidates for use across a range of application areas, though their exploitation has been limited by challenges associated with their production at scale
  • Outline progress in the identification and recombinant production of LOXs from microbial sources, and describe examples of their use as tools in chemical biology tools and materials science
