Role of hydrophobic loop residues in catalysis by triosephosphate isomerase
The role of two selected hydrophobic residues, Isoleucine-172 and Leucine-232, in catalysis by triosephosphate isomerase was investigated. Mutations of these residues into a smaller methyl group and subjecting the resulting ...
Comparative Studies of Kinetics of Ene-yne Metathesis Catalyzed by Two Different Ruthenium Carbenes
In Chapter One of the dissertation the development of ene-yne metathesis catalysts will be summarized. The development and uses of the Grubbs second generation catalyst will be highlighted. The first examples of ene-yne ...
