Self-introduction
I am interested in biological conversion using various kinds of enzymes. We have developed psychrophile-based simple biocatalysts (PSCats) to conduct efficient conversion processes. PSCats can produce the various compounds with high yields only by their biosynthetic thermostable enzymes, which are heterologously expressed in psychrophilic cells whose psychrophilic metabolism is suppressed by heat treatment.
