Using directed evolution, we have improved the hydantoinase process for production of L-methionine (L-met) in Escherichia coli. This was accomplished by inverting the enantioselectivity and increasing the total activity of a key enzyme in a whole-cell catalyst. The selectivity of all known hydantoinases for D-5-(2-methylthioethyl)hydantoin (D-MTEH) over the L-enantiomer leads to the accumulation of intermediates and reduced productivity for the L-amino acid. We used random mutagenesis… Expand

TLDR
The results revealed that coexpression of pydB and lnc in E. coli might be a potential biocatalyst for L-HPA production. Expand
Directed evolution of an aminoalcohol dehydrogenase for efficient production of double chiral aminoalcohols.
TLDR
Results suggest that the Ser214 residue plays an important role in enzyme activity, and that the Gly73 residue participates in enzyme-substrate binding. Expand

Rational re-design of the “double-racemase hydantoinase process” for optically pure production of natural and non-natural l-amino acids
Abstract The “hydantoinase process” is a well-established method for the industrial production of optically pure d -amino acids. However, due to the strict d -enantioselectivity of most hydantoinaseExpand

TLDR
Surprisingly, all L476 mutants catalyze the formation of 2-hydroxy-1-phenyl-propanone with significantly higher enantioselectivity than the wild-type enzyme although enantiOSElectivity was not a selection parameter. Expand

Engineering of the critical residues at the stereochemistry-gate loops of Brevibacillus agri dihydropyrimidinase for the production of l-homophenylalanine
Abstract Brevibacillus agri dihydropyrimidinase (BaDHP) exhibits a substrate preference for d -homophenylalanylhydantoin ( d -HPAH). Site-directed mutagenesis of BaDHP was performed specifically toExpand
Toward a cell-free hydantoinase process: screening for expression optimization and one-step purification as well as immobilization of hydantoinase and carbamoylase
TLDR
Cultivation and induction of the hydantoinase under oxygen deficiency resulted in markedly higher specific activities and a further increase in expression was achieved by codon-optimization, which resulted in specific activities that turned out to be much higher than those of the purified free enzymes.

It is shown that the stereoselectivity of this enzyme depends on the substrate used for bioconversion: although it is strictly L-selective for the cleavage of D,L-5-indolylmethylhydantoin, it appears to be D-selectives for the hydrolysis of D-L-methylthioethylHydantoin. Expand
