This research will focus on the synthesis of BVMO-catalyzed light-driven in vitro lactone without nicotinamide cofactor; and then enlarge the group of type II BVMOs and the scope of substrates; and finally to evaluate the potentiality of the protein scaffold for light-driven reaction in multi-enzymatic step processes.
