Enzymes are biological catalysts that have the capacity to increase the rate of reaction. They do this by lowering the activation energy barrier of the reaction, without undergoing permanent damage themselves or affecting the equilibrium of the reaction.
Most of the industries use metal catalysts which require organic (non-aqueous) solvents, high temperature and pressure conditions, to support and/or enhance their chemical reactions. Enzymes, which are naturally available, can do their magic in aqueous solvents, at moderate temperatures and at easily maintainable pressures, are the pioneers in the much needed paradigm shift in the industries which rely highly on chemical processes.
QuantumzymeTM takes the lead to keep pace with this change, by using its in-house in-silico protocol QZyme WorkbenchTM to engineer the enzymes for the desired activity or specificity. We provide ecologically sustainable biological solutions for synthesizing important chemical compounds for pharmaceutical, food, textile and fragrance industries. Our commitment is to offer an engineered enzyme best suited for the chemical reaction which gives you a clean and green industry.
Given below are a few of the industries which have benefited by working with Quantumzyme:
Enzymes are used to convert the substrate to the specific pure enantiomeric form which gives high yield of product. QuantumzymeTM is developing new engineered enzymes for the production of APIs of high commercial interest using in-silico protocol called QZyme WorkbenchTM. Examples of enzymes engineered by us, include improved transaminases for bulky substrates (Voss et. al., 2018) and keto-reductases.
QuantumzymeTM has developed high-activity Phospholipase A (PLA) variants at neutral and acidic pH conditions for applications in the food industry. The in-silico designed PLA variants were verified to have high activity in the laboratory assays.
Various enzymes are used in the textile industry for texturing and finishing materials for an aesthetic appearance. QuantumzymeTM is developing new cellulase (Endoglucanase) enzymes for applications in the textile industry.
QuantumzymeTM has developed high-activity phospholipase (PLA) variants at neutral and acidic pH conditions for applications in the food industry. The in-silico designed PLA variants were verified to have high activity in the laboratory assays.
Application of amine transaminases (ATAs) came into focus as efficient biocatalysts for the preparation of optically pure amines which represent highly valuable key
