Two bacterial aldolases, RhuA and FucA, which are readily accessible by overex-pression, catalyze the asymmetric addition of dihydroxyacetone phosphate to various aldehydes. The high degree of enantio-and diastereoselectivity for the L-threo (RhuA) and D-erythro (FucA) stereochemistry of the products and the high stability of the enzymes make it possible to prepare rare carbohydrates and their derivatives as well as other polyhydroxylated compounds.
