    Description"The typical catalysts you use for this reaction are small nucleophiles," states Prof. Anthony Green of enzC-Hem project host University of Manchester, the United Kingdom, in an article posted on "Chemistry World." "The beauty of biology is that if you can engineer an enzyme or design a protein to do this reaction, the rate acceleration is significant compared to anything that's been achieved with small-molecule chemistry," continues Prof. Green, who is the senior author of the study published in the journal Nature Chemistry.
