Epoxide hydrolases (EHs), are enantioselective enzymes as they catalyze the kinetic resolution of racemic epoxides into the corresponding enantiopure vicinal diols, which are useful precursors in the synthesis of chiral pharmaceutical compounds. Here, we have identified and cloned two putative epoxide hydrolase genes (cpeh and sneh) from marine bacteria,(More)
Epoxide hydrolases (EHs; 3.3.2.x) catalyze the enantioselective ring opening of racemic epoxides to the corresponding enantiopure vicinal diols and remaining equivalent unreacted epoxides. These epoxides and diols are used for the synthesis of chiral drug intermediates. With an upsurge in the methods for identification of novel microbial EHs, a lot of EHs(More)
In order to produce enantiomerically pure epoxides for the synthesis of value-added chemicals, a novel putative epoxide hydrolase (EH) sgeh was cloned and overexpressed in pET28a/Escherichia coli BL21(DE3). The 1047 bp sgeh gene was mined from Streptomyces griseus NBRC 13350 genome sequence. The recombinant hexahistidyl-tagged SGEH was purified (16.6-fold)(More)
