Title
Enantioselective production of 2,2-dimethylcyclopropane carboxylic acid from 2,2-dimethylcyclopropane carbonitrile using the nitrile hydratase and amidase of Rhodococcus erythropolis ATCC 25544
Abstract

The enantioselective production of (S)-2,2-dimethylcyclopropane carboxylic acid was investigated in 53 Rhodococcus and Pseudomonas related strains. Rhodococcus erythropolis ATCC 25544 was selected as it showed the highest enantioselectivity. The enantioselectivity was due to the amidase activity in a two-step reaction involving nitrile hydratase. The enantiomeric excess of the amidase was highest at pH 7.0 and decreased significantly above 20 °C. For the enantioselective production of (S)-2,2-dimethylcyclopropane carboxylic acid, the optimum reaction conditions of the cells were determined to be pH 7.0, 20 °C, and 10% (v/v) methanol and were the same as the optimum pH and temperature for the enantioselective conversion by the amidase. Under these conditions, the R. erythropolis ATCC 25544 cells, which harbored nitrile hydratase and amidase enzymes, produced 45 mM (S)-2,2-dimethylcyclopropane carboxylic acid from racemic 100 mM 2,2-dimethylcyclopropane carbonitrile with an 81.8% enantiomeric excess after 64 h.
