OptZyme is a new computational procedure for designing improved enzymatic activity i.e., kcat or kcat-KM with a novel substrate. The key concept is to use transition state analogue compounds, which are known for many reactions, as proxies for the typically unknown transition state structures. Mutations that minimize the interaction energy of the enzyme with its transition state analogue, rather than with its substrate, are identified that lower the transition state formation energy barrier. Using Escherichia coli β-glucuronidase as a benchmark system, we confirm that KM correlates R2 = 0.960 with the computed interaction energy between the enzyme and the para-nitrophenyl- β, D-glucuronide substrate, kcat-KM correlates R2 = 0.864 with the interaction energy of the transition state analogue, 1,5-glucarolactone, and kcat correlates R2 = 0.854 with a weighted combination of interaction energies with the substrate and transition state analogue. OptZyme is subsequently used to identify mutants with improved KM, kcat, and kcat-KM for a new substrate, para-nitrophenyl- β, D-galactoside. Differences between the three libraries reveal structural differences that underpin improving KM, kcat, or kcat-KM. Mutants predicted to enhance the activity for para-nitrophenyl- β, D-galactoside directly or indirectly create hydrogen bonds with the altered sugar ring conformation or its substituents, namely H162S, L361G, W549R, and N550S.
