Prospecting for efficient enantioselective epoxide hydrolases

Abstract

Epoxide hydrolases (EHs) from microbial sources have recently been recognized as a versatile biocatalytic tool for the synthesis of enantiomerically pure epoxides and vicinal diols. Keeping in mind the potential of these compounds in pharmaceutical, agrochemical and flavour industries, a range of epoxide substrates have been analyzed using epoxide hydrolase… (More)
