Ward, T.R.

Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2016, 55, 11587-11590, 10.1002/anie.201605010

Regulation of enzymatic activity is vital to living organisms. Here, we report the development and the genetic optimization of an artificial zymogen requiring the action of a natural protease to upregulate its latent asymmetric transfer hydrogenase activity.
