Phenylalanine dehydrogenase (PDH)

Short Description:

About Phenylalanine dehydrogenase

ES-PDH: A class of oxidoreductase. The positive reaction can catalyze the oxidative deamination of L phenylalanine salt in the presence of NAD to produce phenylpyruvate salt, and the reverse reaction can catalyze the synthesis of corresponding amino acid salt from phenylpyruvate salt. Syncozymes developed 8 items of phenylalanine dehydrogenase (numbered ES-PDH-101~ES-PDH-108). ES-PDH can be used to prepare phenylalanine salt or corresponding amino acid salt from phenylpyruvic acid salt or derivatives.

Instructions for use:

➢ Normally, the reaction system should include substrate, buffer solution, enzyme, coenzyme (NAD(H)), coenzyme regeneration system (e.g. ammonium formate and formate dehydrogenase).
➢ Each kind of ES-PDH corresponding to various optimum reaction conditions, which could be studied individually if needed.
➢ The ES-PDH should be added last into reaction system to maintain the activity.

Application Examples:

Example 1(Biosynthesis of phenylalanine derivatives from phenylpyruvate derivatives)(1):



Keep 2 years below -20℃.


Never contact with extreme conditions such as: high temperature, high/low pH and high concentration organic solvent.
