Abstract

VpStyA1 and VpStyA2B of Variovorax paradoxus EPS is annotated and characterized as the first representative of an E2-type styrene monooxygenase of proteobacteria. It comprises a single epoxidase (VpStyA1) and a fusion protein (VpStyA2B) which serves mainly as NADH:FAD-oxidoreductase. VpStyA2B had a Km of 33.6 ± 4.0 µM for FAD and a kcat of 22.3 ± 1.1 s-1. VpStyA2B and VpStyA1 showed monooxygenase activity on styrene of 0.14 U mg-1 and 0.46 U mg-1 as well as on benzyl methyl sulfide of 1.62 U mg-1 and of 3.11 U mg-1. A putative fusion region at position 408 (AREAV) was mutated to provide insights on VpStyA2B-function. The best mutant (408-AAAAA) obtained showed a 6.6-times higher affinity for FAD while keeping the NADH-affinity and -oxidation activity. Corresponding epoxidase activity increased (1.6-times). But, other mutants showed still NADH:FAD-oxidoreductase activity, but lost mostly their epoxidase activity indicating effects on the monooxygenase-part as well. Thus, this monooxygenase system represents an interesting candidate for biocatalyst development.
