Asymmetric synthesis of (S)-4-chloro-3-hydroxybutanoate by sorbose reductase from Candida albicans with two co-existing recombinant Escherichia coli strains.


PMID 25765951

Abstract

An NADPH-dependent sorbose reductase from Candida albicans was identified to catalyze the asymmetric reduction of ethyl 4-chloro-3-oxobutanoate (COBE). The activity of the recombinant enzyme toward COBE was 6.2 U/mg. The asymmetric reduction of COBE was performed with two coexisting recombinant Escherichia coli strains, in which the recombinant E. coli expressing glucose dehydrogenase was used as an NADPH regenerator. An optical purity of 99% (e.e.) and a maximum yield of 1240 mM (S)-4-chloro-3-hydroxybutanoate were obtained under an optimal biomass ratio of 1:2. A highest turnover number of 53,900 was achieved without adding extra NADP(+)/NADPH compared with those known COBE-catalytic systems.
