Directed sortase A evolution for efficient site-specific bioconjugations in organic co-solvents

Author affiliations

Abstract

Directed sortase A evolution yielded the variants R159G and D165Q/D186G/K196V with increased resistance (2.2-fold) and catalytic efficiency (6.3-fold) in 45% (v/v) dimethylsulfoxide. Interestingly, D165Q/D186G/K196V also showed an up to 4.7-fold increased activity for the conjugation of hydrophobic peptides/amines in co-solvents. MD simulations revealed that conformational mobilities are important for the gained resistance.
