Abstract

Esterase antibody 522c2, the first example of a catalytic antibody specifically programmed to control the reactivity of functional groups on the side chain of tyrosine, accelerates the hydrolysis of benzoate esters of L-tyrosine and tyrosine-containing dipeptides by a factor of 104 and is moderately active against other benzoate esters.
