Abstract

Tetrahydroxynaphthalene reductase (T4HNR) from Magnaporthe grisea catalyzes the reduction of polyhydroxynaphthalenes, hydroxynaphthoquinones, and 1,4-diketones, with extensive ramifications for the biosynthesis of (shunt) metabolites related to 1,8-dihydroxynaphthalene (DHN)-melanin biosynthesis. Hence, an extended model for DHN-melanin biosynthesis has been developed which is based on a screening hypothesis involving non-enzymatic transformations such as oxidations and tautomerism. This has led to the broadening of the functions of several short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDRs) capable of reducing polyhydroxyanthracenes, polyhydroxynaphthalenes, and polyhydroxybenzenes. Our work, broadening the scope of enzymatic dearomatization reactions, provides access to the biocatalytic synthesis of a variety of natural and natural-like products. Furthermore, the results described in this account provide the basis for the identification of other SDRs amenable to reducing aromatic compounds, and thus enable the identification of biosynthetic gene clusters most likely involved in the biosynthesis of aromatic polyketides.
