Rigid-Rod ß-Barrels with Internal ""Cascade Blue"" Cofactors - Catalysis of Amide, Carbonate and Ester Hydrolysis

Published inEuropean journal of organic chemistry, vol. 2002, no. 22, p. 3874-3883
Publication date2002

The pyrene-1,3,6-trisulfonate scaffold is introduced as an internal cofactor for histidine-rich p-octiphenyl ß-barrels with catalytic and ion channel activity to mediate binding and conversion of otherwise inaccessible benzaldehyde substrates. Up to 170,000-fold accelerations of amide, ester, and carbonate hydrolysis, high substrate diversity, high chemoselectivity, and absence of enantioselectivity are reported.
