  • Characterisation of Enzyme Evolution through Ancestral Enzyme Reconstruction

    Prentice, Erica Jean (University of Waikato, 2013)
    Through ancestral sequence reconstruction (ASR) techniques, ancient enzymes can be recreated and biochemically tested, giving insight into the enzymes’ evolutionary history. A previous study by Hobbs et al. (2012) has ...
  • Investigating Macromolecular Rate Theory

    Prentice, Erica Jean (The University of Waikato, 2017)
    Curvature with temperature is a defining characteristic of enzyme catalysed rates. Historically, curvature has been described by Arrhenius behaviour up to a temperature optimum (Tₒₚₜ), while decreases in rates above Tₒₚₜ ...
