Resolution of 4-amino-cyclopentanecarboxylic acid methyl esters using hydrolytic enzymes.

Abstract

A number of esterases (EC 3.1.1.1) and lipases (EC 3.1.1.3) of microbial and mammalian origin were screened for the ability to resolve racemic 4-amino-cyclopentanecarboxylic acid methyl ester derivatives as potential intermediates in the production of carbocyclic nucleosides. Surprisingly, functionalization of the remote amino group had a profound effect on… (More)
