Abstract The enzymatic reduction of N-Boc-4S-amino-3-oxo-5-phenylpentanoic acid methylester, the key intermediate in the stereoselective synthesis of a statinanalogue, was studied with Hansenula anomala and Hansenula silvicola. Using whole cells of H. anomala gives complete conversion and a diastereomeric excess of 88\% of the desired 3S, 4S statinanalogue. The strain contains two NADPH-dependent oxidoreductases, that can be separated by ion exchange chromatography or gelfiltration, yielding the 3S, 4S or 3R, 4S stereoisomers, respectively, with > 99\% diastereomeric excess (DE). In the crude extract the 3S, 4S oxidoreductase is very unstable and could be purified with << 1\% yield only. In contrast, H. silvicola, which gave poor conversions using whole cells, exhibited about 80-fold higher specific activity in the crude extract than H. anomala. The NADPH-dependent oxidoreductase was purified 317-fold in 12\% yield. A single enzyme of 54 kDa reduces the substrate with 97.4\% DE. Besides the statinanalogue a wide range of other compounds could be reduced, most notably diones and chinones such as isatin or campherchinone. It was demonstrated that the enzymes often discussed for the reduction of beta-ketoesters with yeast e.g. L-3-hydroxyacyl CoA dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.35), the beta-ketoreductase of the fatty acid synthase complex and also the 3-hydroxy-3-methyl glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.34) are separated during the purification steps from the oxidoreductase acting on N-Boc-4S-amino-3-oxo-5-phenylpentanoic acid methylester. The physiological role of the new enzyme is still unknown.
