Abstract: The isopenicillin N synthases isolated thus far are related to oxidases from other microorganisms and plants. These enzymes maintain a non-heme monoferrous-dependent catalytic centre comprising a HisXAsp(53-57)XHis motif and a crucial substrate-binding pocket with an ArgXSer motif for their functionality. The elucidation of these motifs was dependent on information collated from studies on structural chemistry, structural biology, site- directed engineered mutations and biochemical experiments. It is envisaged that these enzymes can potentially be improved through molecular breeding and protein engineering.
