Abstract

The novel histidine-tagged Horse Liver Alcohol Dehydrogenase (His-HLADH-EE) was successfully purified and covalently immobilized onto a solid support in a one-step procedure through a metal-directed technique. A full characterization of the immobilized enzyme was carried out. Effects of pH, temperature and organic co-solvents were deeply investigated and they showed a shift in the optimum pH with respect to the free form as well as increased stability to temperature and solvents. The immobilized His-HLADH-EE proved to be effective as catalyst in the reduction of aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes. Application of the free and immobilized His-HLADH-EE to the chemo-enzymatic synthesis of (S)-Profenols demonstrated enhanced enantioselectivity and high reusability of the immobilized form. The achievement of a robust and effective immobilization of an alcohol dehydrogenase substantiated the use of biocatalytic reduction in the synthesis of primary alcohols and valuable chiral intermediates especially for pharmaceutical industries.
