Selective C-H functionalization at distal positions remains a highly challenging problem in organic synthesis. Though Nature has evolved a myriad of enzymes capable of such feat, their synthetic utility has largely been overlooked. Here, we functionally characterize an α-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase (Fe/αKG) that selectively hydroxylates the δ position of various aliphatic amino acids. Kinetic analysis and substrate profiling of the enzyme show superior catalytic efficiency and substrate… CONTINUE READING
