The accessibility of reactants to the surface of enzymes is crucial for its function. Therefore, in order to exploit the enzymatic properties of proteins in non-biological environments, it is imperative to organize proteins in assemblies that expose their surfaces to the reactants. I will describe a couple of methods we have applied to successfully organize and analyze enzymatically active proteins in non-biological environments.
