Our expertise is based on extensive experience of biological catalysts or enzymes. Enzyme activity analysis is the foundation of the expertise we offer you.
Using enzymes devoted to the synthesis of products of interest is an alternative to more polluting conventional strategies, such as organic chemistry.
How to purchase more active enzymes, recognizing the desired substrate or producing a specific compound ?
By scanning through their sequence and studying their conformation, molecular modeling and protein engineering, D-ZYME offers to confer optimized properties to targetted enzymes .
International databases and our library of enzymes collected through different laboratory's projects, allow us to propose original enzymes in order to meet your specific and individual request.
Enzymatic activity can be optimized by random or rational mutagenesis of known and characterized enzymes, taking into account the industrial constraints and performance expectations.
We can redirect the enzymatic activity towards your aim by enzyme remodeling strategies using in silico model design and bioinformatic techniques like docking and molecular dynamics.
Thanks to our enzyme expertise, we offer services to identify, quantify and characterize in a mixture or preparation, different enzymatic activities.
In addition, we conduct inhibitor evaluation assays for specific enzymatic activities.
Our core competence is enzyme activity analysis and enzyme design or creation of "customised" enzyme. D-ZYME therefore offers bio-responsible solutions to overcome biological and technological obstacles.
Using spectrophotometry, luminescence and fluorescence we conduct enzymatic activities analysis for a broad spectrum of enzymes and substrates.
Protein engineering techniques and medium throughput screening propose new possibilities in the development of new biocatalyst and synthesis of original eco-friendly products.
D-ZYME also offers a service upstream of the optimization activity. This service can be a search in databases (scientific monitoring) or a strategies proposed to improve the enzymatic activity.
