Bottom Line: The mutation improved enantioselectivity in Q114M over the wild-type, while enantioselectivity in Q114L was reduced.Molecular sieves employed as desiccant were found to adversely affect catalysis in the lipase variants, particularly in Q114M.The higher desiccant loading also increased viscosity in the reaction and further reduced the efficiency of the lipase-catalyzed esterifications.

ABSTRACT
The substitution of the oxyanion Q114 with Met and Leu was carried out to investigate the role of Q114 in imparting enantioselectivity on T1 lipase. The mutation improved enantioselectivity in Q114M over the wild-type, while enantioselectivity in Q114L was reduced. The enantioselectivity of the thermophilic lipases, T1, Q114L and Q114M correlated better with log p as compared to the dielectric constant and dipole moment of the solvents. Enzyme activity was good in solvents with log p < 3.5, with the exception of hexane which deviated substantially. Isooctane was found to be the best solvent for the esterification of (R,S)-ibuprofen with oleyl alcohol for lipases Q114M and Q114L, to afford E values of 53.7 and 12.2, respectively. Selectivity of T1 was highest in tetradecane with E value 49.2. Solvents with low log p reduced overall lipase activity and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) completely inhibited the lipases. Ester conversions, however, were still low. Molecular sieves employed as desiccant were found to adversely affect catalysis in the lipase variants, particularly in Q114M. The higher desiccant loading also increased viscosity in the reaction and further reduced the efficiency of the lipase-catalyzed esterifications.

Mentions: In the resolution of racemic ibuprofen, oleyl alcohol was used as the resolving agent to separate the enantiomers of ibuprofen (Scheme 1). Recent molecular dynamic simulations revealed that the activation mechanism of T1 lipase involved the lid domain. It is formed by the helix-loop-helix motif that was proposed to be involved in interfacial activation of T1 lipase. The large structural rearrangement of the lid that reveals the entrance to the active site only occurs as a result of interaction between the hydrophobic residues of the lid with octane [14]. Hence, oleyl alcohol was chosen, as it a natural substrate that T1 lipase normally catalyzes and the hydrophobicity of the oleyl alcohol is pertinent for the activation of catalysis.
