Mutants of an esterase (PFE) from Pseudomonas fluorescens were generated using Stratagenes mutator strain, Epicurian Coli XL1-Red. One variant (A209D / L181V) stereoselectively hydrolyzed a sterically-hindered 3-hydroxy ester, which was not accepted as substrate by the wild type. After several mutation cycles, mutants were assayed by plating the esterase-producing colonies onto minimal-media agar plates containing the 3-hydroxy ethyl or glyceryl ester and indicators.

Lipases, as well as esterases, accept a wide range of non-natural esters and also exhibit high activity in organic media.1,2 However, for sterically hindered substrates, these enzymes usually fail.

In previous articles, we were able to resolve aliphatic3 and arylaliphatic4 3-hydroxy esters using commercial lipases or esterases with good to excellent optical purities. Still, the esters could not be resolved for the 3-hydroxy ester 1 bearing two methyl groups at carbon 4 (Figure 1). None of the 18 lipases and 2 esterases tested showed any activity. We considered several options: screen for new enzymes (tedious and time consuming), alter the reaction conditions (e.g. change the solvent system
