Abstract
Abstract Nowadays enzymatic synthesis of nucleic acid derivatives is gaining momentum over traditional chemical synthetic processes. Biotransformations catalyzed by whole cells or enzymes offer an ecofriendly and efficient alternative to the traditional multistep chemical methods, avoiding the use of chemical reagents and organic solvents that are expensive and environmentally harmful. Herein we report for the first time the covalent immobilization a uracil phosphoribosyltransferase (UPRT). In this sense, UPRT from Thermus thermophilus HB8 was immobilized onto glutaraldehyde-activated MagReSyn®Amine magnetic iron oxide porous microparticles (MTtUPRT). According to the catalyst load experiments, MTtUPRT3 was selected as optimal biocatalyst for further studies. MTtUPRT3 was active and stable in a broad range of temperature (70–100 °C) and in the pH interval 6–8, displaying maximum activity at 100 °C and pH 7 (activity 968 IU/gsupport, retained activity 100%). In addition, MTtUPRT3 could be reused up to 8 times in the synthesis of uridine-5′-monophosphate (UMP). Finally, MTtUPRT3 was successfully applied in the sustainable synthesis of different 5-modified uridine-5′-monophosphates at short times. Taking into account these results, MTtUPRT3 would emerge as a valuable biocatalyst for the synthesis of nucleoside monophosphates through an efficient and environmentally friendly methodology.

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...

In our search for thermophilic and acid-tolerant nucleoside 2′-deoxyribosyltransferases (NDTs), we found a good candidate in an enzyme encoded by Chroococcidiopsis thermalis PCC 7203 (CtNDT). Biophysical and biochemical characterization revealed CtNDT as a homotetramer endowed with good activity and stability at both high temperatures (50–100 °C) and a wide range of pH values (from 3 to 7). CtNDT recognizes purine bases and their corresponding 2′-deoxynucleosides but is also proficient using cyt...

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 se...

Ficin extract has been immobilized on different 4% aminated-agarose beads. Using just ion exchange, immobilization yield was poor and expressed activity did not surpass 10% of the offered enzyme, with no significant effects on enzyme stability. The treatment with glutaraldehyde of this ionically exchanged enzyme produced an almost full enzyme inactivation. Using aminated supports activated with glutaraldehyde, immobilization was optimal at pH 7 (at pH 5 immobilization yield was 80%, while at pH ...

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...

Abstract The dimeric enzyme β-glucosidase from Aspergillus niger has been immobilized on different amino-agarose beads at pH 5 and 7, exploiting the versatility of glutaraldehyde. The stability of the free enzyme depended on enzyme concentration. Immobilization via ion exchange improved enzyme stability/activity, depending on the immobilization pH. However, the enzyme was desorbed in 75 mM NaCl at pH 7 and some stability/enzyme concentration dependence still existed. Treatment: of these biocatal...

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...
