Publication Detail
Engineering-driven biological insights into DNA polymerase mechanism
Abstract
© 2018 Elsevier Ltd DNA-dependent DNA polymerases have been extensively studied for over 60 years and lie at the core of multiple biotechnological and diagnostic applications. Nevertheless, these complex molecular machines remain only partially understood. Here we present some evidence on how polymerase engineering for the synthesis and replication of xenobiotic nucleic acids (XNAs) have improved our understanding of these enzymes and how that can be used to gain further insight into their mechanism. Better understanding of the mechanisms of DNA polymerases can accelerate their engineering and we highlight how it is now feasible to use structure-based and function-based approaches to systematically and iteratively develop XNA polymerases for increasingly divergent chemistries.
