Abstract
The narrow substrate scope of naturally occurring alcohol dehydrogenases (ADHs) greatly limits the enzymatic synthesis of important chiral alcohols. On the basis of X-ray crystal structures and kinetic profiling of a substrate library, we engineered variants of the stereospecific alcohol dehydrogenase from Candida parapsilopsis. This resulted in a set of four mutant enzymes which enable the asymmetric reduction of a broad range of prochiral...
