P450pyr monooxygenase from Sphingomonas sp. HXN-200 catalysed the regio- and stereoselective hydroxylation at a non-activated carbon atom, a useful but challenging reaction in classic chemistry, with unique substrate specificity for a number of alicyclic compounds. New P450pyr mutants were developed by directed evolution with improved catalytic performance, thus significantly extending the application of the P450pyr monooxygenase family in biohydroxylation to prepare useful and valuable chiral alcohols. Directed evolution of P450pyr created new enzymes with improved S-enantioselectivity or R-enantioselectivity for the hydroxylation of N-benzyl pyrrolidine, enhanced regioselectivity for the hydroxylation of N-benzyl pyrrolidinone, and increased enantioselectivity for the hydroxylation of N-benzyl piperidinone, respectively...

Directed evolution of P450pyr created I83M/I82T mutant for highly regioselective terminal hydroxylation of n-butanol to 1,4-butanediol, representing the first achievement of this hydroxylation reaction by chemical or enzymatic methods and an unique example of evolving a hydroxylase to switch the substrate acceptance from a hydrophobic to hydrophilic compound.

Terminal-selective cytochrome P450pyr has been successfully engineered through directed evolution for the subterminal hydroxylation of alkanes with excellent regio- and enantioselectivity. A sensitive colorimetric high-throughput screening (HTS) assay was developed for the measurement of both the regioselectivity and the enantioselectivity of a hydroxylation reaction. By using the HTS assay and iterative saturation mutagenesis, sextuple-mutant P450pyrSM1 was created for the hydroxylation of n-octane (1) to give (S)-2-octanol (2) with 98 % ee and >99 % subterminal selectivity...

A triple mutant of P450pyr monooxygenase (P450pyrTM) catalysed the epoxidation of several para-substituted styrenes as the first enzyme showing high (R)-enantioselectivity and high conversion, demonstrated a broad substrate range, and showed high enantioselectivity for the epoxidation of an unconjugated 1,1-disubstituted alkene, 2-methyl-3-phenyl-1-propene, and a cyclic alkene, N-phenoxycarbonyl-1,2,5,6-tetrahydropyridine, respectively.

E. coli (P450pyrTM-GDH) with dual plasmids, pETDuet containing P450pyr triple mutant I83H/M305Q/A77S (P450pyrTM) and ferredoxin reductase (FdR) genes and pRSFDuet containing glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) and ferredoxin (Fdx) genes, was engineered to show a high activity (12.7 U g⁻¹  cdw) for the biohydroxylation of N-benzylpyrrolidine 1 and a GDH activity of 106 U g⁻¹ protein. The E. coli cells were used as efficient biocatalysts for highly regio- and stereoselective hydroxylation of alicyclic substrates at non-activated carbon atom with enhanced productivity via intracellular recycling of NAD(P)H...

Directed evolution of a monooxygenase to achieve very high enantioselectivity for hydroxylation at non-activated carbon atoms is demonstrated for the first time, where a triple mutant of P450pyr hydroxylase is obtained via determination of enzyme structure, iterative saturation mutagenesis, and high-throughput screening with a MS-based ee assay to increase the product ee from 53% to 98% for the hydroxylation of N-benzyl pyrrolidine to (S)-N-benzyl 3-hydroxypyrrolidine.

We report the first example of directed evolution of a P450 monooxygenase with inverted enantioselectivity for asymmetric biohydroxylation. The biohydroxylation product of the best mutant 1AF4A has an ee of 83% (R) compared to the wild type's ee of 43% (S).
