Description

'The focus of this program is the development of tailor-made biological catalysts for modifying or degrading halogenated compounds and other environmental pollutants. This approach takes advantage of the tremendous chemical diversity of antibodies. Recently, this diversity and specificity have been merged with the understanding of chemical reactivity to generate a new class of antibody molecules-catalytic antibodies. This new technology makes possible the generation of antibody molecules that not only selectively bind but that also chemically transform virtually any molecule of interest. Because antibodies can be elicited to a huge array of biopolymers, natural products, or synthetic molecules, catalytic antibodies offer ... continued below

Recently, this diversity and specificity have been merged with the understanding of chemical reactivity to generate a new class of antibody molecules-catalytic antibodies. This new technology makes possible the generation of antibody molecules that not only selectively bind but that also chemically transform virtually any molecule of interest. Because antibodies can be elicited to a huge array of biopolymers, natural products, or synthetic molecules, catalytic antibodies offer a unique approach for generating tailor-made enzyme-like catalysts with a desired selectivity. At the same time, the characterization of catalytic antibodies provides fundamental state stabilization, proximity effects, general acid and base catalysts, and electrophilic and nucleophilic catalysis and strain.'
