LMB 365 – Day 33

The LMB has a dedicated NMR facility which is heavily involved in answering structural and biophysical questions that can’t be tackled by other techniques. Day 33 of #LMB365 brings you a two-dimensional projection of an NMR experiment to assign the backbone signals of the plastic eating enzyme PETase in collaboration with Prof. John McGeehan from University of Portsmouth. The aim of this study is to search for scientific solutions to the plastic pollution crisis by improving the efficiency and stability of this novel enzyme.
