Abstract

It is demonstrated that engineered arginase with a single protruded site of cysteine deliberately placed away from its active centre by site-directed mutagenesis can facilitate its attachment on a gold-nanoparticle surface with atomic precision, resulting in no apparent loss in enzymatic activity.
