Two libraries of simultaneous double mutations in the active-site region of an esterase from Bacillus stearothermophilus (BsteE) were constructed to improve the enantioselectivity in the hydrolysis of tetrahydrofuran-3-yl acetate. As screening of large mutant libraries is hampered by the necessity of a GC/MS analysis, mutant libraries were designed using a "small, but smart" concept. The design of focused libraries was based on data derived from a structural alignment of 3,317 amino acid sequences of α/β hydrolase fold enzymes using the bioinformatic tool 3DM. In this way, the number of mutants to be screened was substantially reduced compared to a standard site-saturation mutagenesis approach. Whilst the wild type esterase exhibited only poor enantioselectivity (E = 4.3) in the hydrolysis of (S)-tetrahydrofuran-3-yl acetate the best variants obtained by this approach showed increased E-values of up to 10.4. Furthermore, some variants with inverted enantiopreference were found. © 2013 The Authors Journal compilation © 2013 FEBS.
