Identification and Characterization of an Anthrol Reductase from Talaromyces islandicus (Penicillium islandicum) WF-38-12

Abstract

An NADPH-dependent oxidoreductase from Talaromyces islandicus WF-38-12 has been identified through genome analysis. It has been shown to catalyze a regio- and stereoselective reduction of anthrols (formed in situ by the reduction of anthraquinones in the presence of Na2S2O4) to (R)-dihydroanthacenones, with high enantiomeric excess (>99%). The implications of results on the biosynthesis of deoxygenated (bis)anthraquinones and modified (bis)anthraquinones are discussed.
