Molecular chaperones are a ubiquitous type of proteins that play very important roles in protein folding and within the safeguard of cells from numerous stresses linked to the disruption of 3 local dimensional constructions of proteins. crucial of those proteins are the so-called warmth surprise proteins (HSPs), often referred to as tension proteins.

This synthesis is called the Strecker synthesis. , 1985). Another method is reductive animation by NH4 + of the carbonyl group of an -keto acid using for instance alcohol dehydrogenase. 5) using hydrolytic enzymes. All of the mentioned methods give predominantly the natural L-form of the amino acid. By using resolution both the L- and the D-forms are obtainable, however, since the L-form has higher economic interests, processes are designed to give only this enantiomer. There are basically three ways to use hydrolytic enzymes in resolution processes, an ester of the carboxylic group may be hydrolysed by an esterase or protease, an amide at the carboxylic group may be hydrolysed by an amidase or an acyl group at the amino group may be hydrolysed by an acylase.

For use in the laboratory there are numerous reduction and oxidation reactions whose specificity are well known. Most of these reactions are based on the use of metals. To sum up there are a large range of selective organic reactions available for most synthetic needs, however, there is still one area where organic chemists are struggling, that is when stereochemistry is involved, but considerable progress has been achieved in recent years. Using chiral auxiliaries good enantiomeric excesses have been obtained in alkylations of ketones and aldehydes (Evans, Masamune and others).

When R1 is changed so that the pKa-value of the corresponding leaving alcohol is decreased, the reaction becomes less reversible. Completely irreversible conditions are obtained when vinyl esters are used as acyl donors. After reaction the expelled vinyl alcohol immediately tautomerises to the corresponding aldehyde or ketone which provide the irreversibility. However, it has been shown that the E-value also depends on the nature of the alkoxy group of the acyl donor even if the acyl donors give the same acyl enzyme, f.
