Lipase from Pseudomonas cepacia (PCL) shows good enantioselectivity toward primary alcohols. An empirical rule can predict which enantiomer of a primary alcohol reacts faster, but there is no reliable strategy to increase the enantioselectivity. We used a combination of molecular modeling of lipase-transition state analogue complexes and kinetic measurements to identify the molecular basis of the enantioselectivity toward two primary alcohols: 2-methyl-3-phenyl-1-propanol, 1, and 2-phenoxy-1… 
Molecular Basis for the Enantio- and Diastereoselectivity of Burkholderia cepacia Lipase toward γ-Butyrolactone Primary Alcohols
Burkholderia cepacia lipase (BCL) shows high enantioselectivity toward chiral primary alco- hols, but this enantioselectivity is often unpredicta- ble, especially for substrates that contain an
Insight of Pseudomonas cepacia lipase enantioselectivity towards chiral 1-phenyl ethanol and its derivates
A systematic research of PCL (Pseudomonas cepacia lipase) catalyzed kinetic resolution of 1-phenyl ethanol and its derivatives have been done. PCL shows a high activity toward 1-phenyl ethanol and
Effects of substituent and temperature on enantioselectivity for lipase-catalyzed esterification of 2-(4-substituted phenoxy) propionic acids in organic solvents.
TLDR
By raising the reaction temperature with enough water added to isopropyl ether as the reaction medium, the enantioselectivity is found to be dramatically enhanced for the substrate bearing CH(3)O group due to the strong electron-donating effect.
Complex of Burkholderia cepacia lipase with transition state analogue of 1-phenoxy-2-acetoxybutane: biocatalytic, structural and modelling study.
TLDR
To explain the high preference of B. cepacia lipase for (R)-(+)-1, a precursor of its transition state analogue with a tetrahedral P-atom, (R(P),S(P))-O-(2R)- (1-phenoxybut-2-yl)methylphosphonic acid chloride was prepared and crystallized in complex with B. Cepacia Lipase.
Enantioselectivity in Candida antarctica lipase B: A molecular dynamics study
TLDR
A modeling study where the aim has been to develop a molecular dynamics‐based methodology for the prediction of enantioselectivity in Candida antarctica lipase B (CALB), a serine hydrolase, using the tetrahedral reaction intermediate as a model of the transition state.
