Reduction of bicyclo[2.2.2]octane-2,6-dione to (1R, 4S, 6S)-6-hydroxy-bicyclo[2.2.2]octane-2-one by whole cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was improved using an engineered recombinant strain and process design. The substrate inhibition followed a Han-Levenspiel model showing an effective concentration window between 12 and 22 g/l, in which the activity was kept above 95%. Yeast growth stage, substrate concentration and a stable pH were shown to be important parameters for effective conversion. The over-expression of the reductase gene YDR368w significantly improved diastereoselectivity compared to previously reported results. Using strain TMB4110 expressing YDR368w in batch reduction with pH control, complete conversion of 40 g/l (290 mM) substrate was achieved with 97% diastereomeric excess (de) and >99 enantiomeric excess (ee), allowing isolation of the optically pure ketoalcohol in 84% yield.
