A purine nucleoside phosphorylase from Aeromonas hydrophila (AhPNP) was found to catalyze the regio- and stereoselective transfer of the ribofuranosyl moiety from 7-methylguanosine iodide (1) to a library of 6- substituted purines, resulting in moderate to high conversions (18-65%) into their ribonucleoside counterparts (26- 34, 36-49). Exploring of substrate recognition by AhPNP with regard to 6-position of purine base provided the necessary information to exploit this biocatalyst for the chemoenzymatic synthesis of nucleoside analogues through a transglycosylation reaction.

Abstract

A purine nucleoside phosphorylase from Aeromonas hydrophila (AhPNP) was found to catalyze the regio- and stereoselective transfer of the ribofuranosyl moiety from 7-methylguanosine iodide (1) to a library of 6- substituted purines, resulting in moderate to high conversions (18-65%) into their ribonucleoside counterparts (26- 34, 36-49). Exploring of substrate recognition by AhPNP with regard to 6-position of purine base provided the necessary information to exploit this biocatalyst for the chemoenzymatic synthesis of nucleoside analogues through a transglycosylation reaction.
