Biotinspired! A new strategy for the generation of chemical diversity in artificial transfer hydrogenases (ATHases) based on the biotin–streptavidin technology is disclosed. By combining a biotinylated MCp* fragment with 34 commercially available ligands in the presence of wild-type streptavidin, promising candidates for the asymmetric reduction of imines are identified. Selected ligands are screened against 21 streptavidin isoforms and the performance of the resulting constructs is evaluated.
