Oxygenase enzymes have seen limited practical applications because of their complexity, poor stabilities, and often low catalytic rates. However, their ability to perform difficult chemistry with high selectivity and specificity has kept oxygenases at the forefront of engineering efforts. Growing understanding of structure–function relationships and improved protein engineering methods are paving the way for applications of oxygenases in chemical synthesis and bioremediation.
