Abstract

The structure-function relationship studies of glycoside hydrolases contribute to unveil new strategies to improve thermal stability, specificity, and modulation - knowledge that can be used for the development of optimized enzymes for biotechnological processes as well as to assist the rational design of enzymes. However, studies regarding the structural determinants for the different modes of action of these enzymes on the substrates, which would be a next step in the investigations, are limited due to the lack of information regarding the products formed by enzyme action. Thus, the characterization of the cleavage products combined with site-directed mutagenesis and crystallographic studies would allow us to elucidate the molecular basis of the mode of action of these enzymes and provides a better understanding beyond what the current tools available allow. The main experiment that is routinely performed in this machine is the analysis of reaction products of glycoside hydrolases and for that, the products will be labeled with APTS, a fluorescent molecule. Hence, for detection of APTS-labeled products is strictly necessary coupling a module of excitation and fluorescence detection. A number of novel enzymes have been discovered by genome sequencing as well as new approaches such as metagenomics, and the understanding of products formed by glycoside hydrolases and their biochemical and kinetic behavior would be crucial to assess the biotechnological potential of these enzymes. The state-of-the-art studies on functional and structural aspects of GHs have been based in 3D structure elucidation along with a detailed functional characterization including necessarily the analysis of cleavage products of wild-type and mutant enzymes. With this equipment, a next level of understanding of the mechanistic of these enzymes will be achieved. The Automated Laboratory for Protein Crystallization (RoboLab) is already a reality in LNBio and has been largely contributing to the determination of new 3D structures that combined with the new Capillary Electrophoresis System will provide a formidable set of tools to assess the mode of action of glycosidic enzymes. This acquisition will extend and integrate the LNBio research in this field as well as other universities and institutions which could be interested. (AU)
