Baeyer-Villiger Monooxygenases (BVMOs)

Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenases (BVMOs) catalyze the oxidation of carbonylic substrates to ester or lactone products using NADPH as electron donor and molecular oxygen as electron acceptor. The emerging picture is that these enzymes are mainly oxygen-activating and “Criegee-stabilizing” catalysts that act on any chemically suitable substrate that can diffuse into the active site, which makes BVMOs versatile tools for biocatalytic applications.

Besides Baeyer-Villiger oxidations, these enzymes are used for heteroatom oxidations, with most industrial efforts focused on the oxidation of sulfides, forming chiral sulfoxides. Also oxidations of amines, boron and selenium have been demonstrated.

Our collection of BVMOs contains the enzymes listed below, of which a large proportion is in stock as purified enzyme. Our collection of BVMOs is continuously expanded with new enzymes, but also with new mutants with promising characteristics. For several enzymes we have larger libraries that can be screened to fine-tune selectivity.

The thermostable catalase from Thermobifida fusca (TfuCat) can be used in biotechnological processes for the removal of hydrogen peroxide.

Except for catalyzing the dismutation of hydrogen peroxide, TfuCat was also found to catalyze oxidations of phenolic compounds.

Dye-decolorizing peroxidases (DyPs)

As alternatives for the plant and animal peroxidases, the newly discovered DyP-type peroxidases (DyPs) may offer advantages. Except for facilitating the production of peroxidases and eliminating the existence of isoforms, the ability to produce DyPs in a recombinant form also allows engineering of these biocatalysts. The first DyPs were identified less than two decades ago. DyPs are unrelated in sequence and structure to known peroxidases belonging to the plant or animal peroxidase superfamilies. DyPs are typically identified by their activity on anthraquinone dyes. While DyPs are efficient in degrading these synthetic dyes, the physiological substrates for DyPs are unclear and therefore their role in nature is enigmatic. Interestingly, recent studies suggest that bacterial DyPs may play an important role in the degradation of lignin which suggests that DyPs represent the bacterial counterparts of the fungal lignin peroxidases. Except for establishing their activity on synthetic dyes and possible role in lignin degradation, little data is available concerning their biocatalytic potential.

Flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMOs)

Flavin-containing monooxygenases are known for their broad substrate specificity and their ability to perform oxygenations of e.g. amines and sulfides. Some bacterial FMOs were shown to perform hydroxylation of indoles (MeFMO) while the human FMO5 was recently shown to be able to perform various Baeyer-Villiger oxidations. Below some of the GECCO FMOs are highlighted, while we also can offer other microbial FMOs.
