By creating molecular 'bridge,' scientists change function of a protein
... Chen and Huimin Zhao, a professor of chemical and biomolecular
engineering, describe what they call a "simple and efficient method for creation of novel protein functions in an existing protein scaffold." In doing so, Zhao and Chen skirted the two time-and-labor-consuming approaches tried repeatedly in the past ...
