Plant Biotechnology. Comprehensive Biotechnology: Second Supplement

At the present time it really is quite often authorised that one of many key parts of biotechnology for the subsequent century might be in plant-based biotechnology. Biotechnology has created new possibilities for plant scientists, with very important functions to agriculture and forestry. This reference textual content is split into 5 sections for ease of presentation.

18 The Biochemical Basis Notice that n > 1 represents positive cooperativity with respect to substrate binding, whereas n < 1 denotes negative cooperativity. On the other hand, enzyme activity can be inhibited by certain molecules, known as inhibitors, which bind to the enzyme (E) and/or enzyme–substrate complex (ES) during the reaction. There are three major models (Table 1) describing enzyme kinetics in the presence of an inhibitor (I), that is, (1) competitive inhibition, in which the inhibitor binds to the enzyme only; (2) uncompetitive inhibition, in which the inhibitor binds to the enzyme–substrate complex only; and (3) mixed (or noncompetitive) inhibition, in which the inhibitor binds to both the enzyme and enzyme–substrate complex.

Enzyme engineering is a powerful tool enabling these approaches primarily based on the optimization of amino acid sequence. Currently, it is still technically difficult to design an artificial enzyme in vitro. Hence, a natural enzyme close to the final target form has to be selected first for engineering. The modified amino acid sequence can potentially lead to a minor or major structural change, which subsequently elicits desirable properties. The novel catalytic properties derived herewith can be introduced into biological cells, particularly microorganisms, for genetic and metabolic engineering purposes [5].
