Challenging thermodynamics? As a result of its highly hydrophobic active site, an acyl transferase from Mycobacterium smegmatis catalyzes synthetic reactions in buffer in which other hydrolases could only conduct hydrolysis. Among several options, opportunities for downstream processing, enantioselective (multistep) aqueous syntheses, and peracid-mediated epoxidations and oxidations are envisaged.
