Abstract
The enzymatic synthesis of nucleotides offers several advantages over traditional multistep chemical methods, such as stereoselectivity, regioselectivity, enantioselectivity, simple downstream processing, and the use of mild reaction conditions. However, in order to scale up these bioprocesses, several drawbacks, such as the low enzyme stability and recycling, must be considered. Enzyme immobilization may overcome these cost-related problems by enhancing protein stability and facilitating the separation of products. In this regard, tetrameric hypoxanthine–guanine–xanthine phosphoribosyltransferase (HGXPRT) from Thermus thermophilus HB8 was covalently immobilized onto glutaraldehyde-activated MagReSyn®Amine magnetic iron oxide porous microparticles (MTtHGXPRT). In this context, two different strategies were followed: (a) an enzyme immobilization through its N-terminus residues at pH 8.5 (derivatives MTtHGXPRT1-3); and (b) a multipoint covalent immobilization through the surface lysine residues at pH 10 (derivatives MTtHGXPRT4-5). The immobilized derivatives of MTtHGXPRT3 (activity 1581 international units per gram of support, IU/g; retained activity 29%) and MTtHGXPRT5 (activity 1108 IU/g; retained activity 23%) displayed the best wet biocatalyst activity, and retained activity values in the enzymatic synthesis of inosine-5′-monophosphate (IMP). In addition, the dependence of the activities and stabilities of both derivatives on pH and temperature was tested, as well as their reusability potential. Taking these results into account, MTtHGXPRT3 was chosen as the best biocatalyst (negligible loss of activity at 60 °C during 24 h; reusable up to seven cycles). Finally, as proof of concept, the enzymatic production of dietary nucleotides from high concentrations of low soluble bases was achieved.

Abstract Papain enzyme was successfully immobilized by covalent bonding onto biocompatible Fe 3 O 4 /SF nanoparticles, which were prepared with the soft template of silk fibroin (SF). The optimized immobilization condition is pH 6.0, hydrolysis time of 60 min, and an enzyme/support ratio of 10.0 mg/g. Compared with free papain, the immobilized papain exhibits a high effective activity, broader working pH and temperature. This immobilized papain can be separated from the solution by the external ...

AbstractPurine phosphoribosyltransferases, purine PRTs, are essential enzymes in the purine salvage pathway of living organisms. They are involved in the formation of C-N glycosidic bonds in purine nucleosides-5′-monophosphate (NMPs) through the transfer of the 5-phosphoribosyl group from 5-phospho-α-D-ribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) to purine nucleobases in the presence of Mg2+. Herein, we report a simple and thermostable process for the one-pot, one-step synthesis of some purine NMPs using xant...

Abstract A new procedure was carried out for the synthesis of nucleoside 5′-monophosphates, involving the use of two enzymes. The first step applied phospholipase D from Streptomyces netropsis and phosphatidylcholine as phosphatidyl donor, to give 5′-(3- sn -phosphatidyl) nucleosides (C, U, A, I). These were selectively hydrolysed in the second step by the action of phospholipase C from Bacillus cereus to produce the respective 5′-nucleotides. Application of this methodology on a preparative sca...

The use of enzymes as biocatalysts applied to synthesis of modified nucleoside-5'-monophosphates (NMPs) is an interesting alternative to traditional multistep chemical methods which offers several advantages, such as stereo, regio and enantioselectivity, simple downstream processing, and mild reaction conditions. Herein we report the recombinant expression, production and purification of uracil phosphoribosyltransferase from Thermus themophilus HB8 (TtUPRT). The structure of TtUPRT has been dete...

Biocatalysis reproduce nature’s synthetic strategies in order to synthesize different organic compounds. Natural metabolic pathways usually involve complex networks to support cellular growth and survival. In this regard, multi-enzymatic systems are valuable tools for the production of a wide variety of organic compounds.

Abstract Traditionally, enzymatic synthesis of nucleoside-5′-monophosphates (5′-NMPs) using low water-soluble purine bases has been described as less efficient due to their low solubility in aqueous media. The use of enzymes from extremophiles, such as thermophiles or alkaliphiles, offers the potential to increase solubilisation of these bases by employing high temperatures or alkaline pH. This study describes the cloning, expression and purification of hypoxanthine-guanine-xanthine phosphoribos...

Abstract The present review deals with current advances in the chemoenzymatic synthesis of biologically important nucleoside analogues (NA), either by the use of microorganisms or enzymes as biocatalysts. The interest in exploiting these biocatalysts is constantly increasing nowadays because of the advantages they have with respect to classic organic chemistry synthesis, such as a fewer number of synthesis steps, an improved chemo-, regio- and stereoselectivity, high catalytic efficiency, and si...

Living cells are most perfect synthetic factory. The surprising synthetic efficiency of biological systems is allowed by the combination of multiple processes catalyzed by enzymes working sequentially. In this sense, biocatalysis tries to reproduce nature’s synthetic strategies to perform the synthesis of different organic compounds using natural catalysts such as cells or enzymes. Nowadays, the use of multienzymatic systems in biocatalysis is becoming a habitual strategy for the synthesis of or...

Due to their similarity to natural counterparts, nucleic acid derivatives (nucleobases, nucleosides, and nucleotides, among others) are interesting molecules for pharmaceutical, biomedical, or food industries. For this reason, there is increasing worldwide demand for the development of efficient synthetic processes for these compounds. Chemical synthetic methodologies require numerous protection-deprotection steps and often lead to the presence of undesirable by-products or enantiomeric mixtures...
