Enzymes in clavam biosynthesis

The work has resulted in the identification of enzymes that catalyse the formation of the beta-lactam ring in the biosynthesis of important antibiotics including the carbapenems and the ß-lactamase inhibitor clavulanic acid. These enzymes, or modified forms thereof, may be useful in the production of medicinally useful beta-lactam antibiotics.
