Site-directed mutagenesis of these key amino acids can be explored to understand the structural and kinetic effects associated with these mutations. Multiple rounds of mutagenesis and screening can be performed to accumulate multiple mutations synergistically leading to a major phenotypical change, a concept called directed evolution [13]. Such techniques have resulted in the construction of many man-made enzymes (or genetically modified microorganisms) with novel bioactivities that are practically useful.

Theoretically, enzymes from any biological source can be produced using an appropriate gene expression system. Microbial cells (in particular the Gram-negative bacterium E. coli) are commonly adopted as the expression host for key enzyme-encoded genes. As a result, currently over 60% of commercial enzymes are produced using recombinant DNA technology [10]. Recombinant DNA technology offers a molecular tool to clone a gene of interest for expression within the same host (homologous expression) or within a different host (heterologous expression).
