The front cover artwork for Issue 05/2019 is provided by the Korendoych and the Makhlynets Labs at Syracuse University (USA) in collaboration with the VIB Centre for Structural Biology (Belgium), College of Charleston (USA) and Kyiv National University (Ukraine). The image shows AlleyCat2, a minimalist allosterically regulated Kemp eliminase, efficiently promoting ring opening of leflunomide, an immunosuppresant. Small libraries of designed catalysts provide fertile ground for discovering new reactivities. See the Communication itself at
