Title: Chimeric enzymes for conversion of lignin-derived chemicals

Abstract

Disclosed herein are enzymes useful for the dealkylation of aromatic substrates, including the conversion of guaiacol or guaethol to catechol. Methods of converting aromatic substrates found in lignin-based feedstocks such as pyrolysis oil into products such as catechol are also disclosed. Also presented herein are methods for rapidly evolving and optimizing genetic regions.
