Abstract

Enzymes are important biological molecules widely studied and used in economic activities. Epoxide hydrolase enzymes catalyze the hydrolysis of epoxides to their corresponding diols, and several studies have shown its great potential for biotechnological applications in industrial processes and bioremediation. This project describes the steps already completed in the master's program, as the identification and characterization of two genes encoding epoxide hydrolases enzymes (TrEH 1 and TrEH 2) of the fungus Trichoderma reesei and cloning in pProEX-HTa expression vector (Life Technologies, USA), expression in Escherichia coli BL 21, and purifying of the epoxide hydrolase 2 (TrEH 2). Developed preliminary tests show enzymatic activity and enantioselectivity on the substrate styrene oxide (epoxide). For the continuation of the project (direct doctorate) proposes the expression and purification of recombinant protein TrEH 1 and with the two enzymes (TrEH 1 and TrEH 2), we intend to conduct the kinetic enzymatic characterization, tests of enantioselectivity determination with High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and structural predictions. This proposal is the first in the description and characterization of the Trichoderma reesei's epoxide hydrolases. (AU)
