Roland Weis, Richard Gaisberger, Wolfgang Skranc, Karl Gruber and Anton Glieder Carving the Active Site of Almond R-HNL for Increased Enantioselectivity Angewandte Chemie International Edition 44
Structure-guided redesign of the active site of almond (R)-PaHNL5 for increased enantioselectivity resulted in four improved muteins. In particular, mutation V360I gave enhanced conversion rates and enantioselectivities higher than 96 % ee for two structurally related substrates 1 and 2. Chiral building blocks for the synthesis of pharmaceutically active “prils” (example shown) can thus be produced on a large scale.
