Abstract

See full text

Provided herein are methods and means for enhancing enzymatic activity. The system makes use of an emulsion for in vitro compartmentalization of a library of synthetic compounds which have a gene and a marked enzymatic substrate both directly linked to a solid phase. Expressed enzymes with greater activity will preferentially release the selectable marker from the solid phase, whereas enzymes with less activity will leave the markers intact. Removal of the marked compounds provides an enriched gene library encoding for more active variants. Also described are synthetic compounds and emulsions which can be used in the methods.
