Ascorbic cid ws dded in the rection medium to inhibit the formtion of ortho-quinones, thus voiding the known enzyme suicide inctivtion process.

Introduction Tyrosinse (Tyro; EC ), polyphenol oxidse widely diffused in nture, ctlyzes the oxidtion of phenols to ctechols (cresolse or monophenolse ctivity) nd tht of ctechols to corresponding ortho-quinones (ctecholse or diphenolse ctivity). 1 Both ctechols nd ortho-quinones derivtives re chrcterized by severl biologicl ctivities, including ntioxidnt nd ntitumorl properties. 2 The trnsformtion of phenols to ctechols nd quinones is usully difficult to perform by chemicl methods under environmentl friendly conditions. 3 For this reson, tyrosinse received gret ttention s useful green lterntive to chemicl tretments. 4 The ppliction of tyrosinse in bioctlysis is prtilly limited due to the formtion of rective ortho-quinones tht cn covlently bond to the enzyme or utoxidize, producing brown pigments. 5 This drwbck cn be overcome working in reducing conditions in the presence of scorbic cid or NADH. 6 Moreover, the possibility to immobilize tyrosinse on stble nd low cost supports further increse the interest for this enzyme in industril pplictions. 7 Exmples of the immobiliztion of tyrosinse on crbon nnotube, 8 copolymer mtrices, 9 chitosn, 10 gold nnoprticles, 11 lumin sol-gel, 12 membrne lginte, polycrylmide, nd geltine gels 13 hve been reported in the production Corresponding uthor.

It is lso known tht tyrosinse cn be inhibited t reltively high concentrtions of AA. 21 For this reson, the AA concentrtion requires to be optimized for good compromise between n high enzyme ctivity nd high yield in ctechols. 22 The comprison between the efficiency nd selectivity of tyrosinse with nd without the LbL procedure, s well s the possibility to recycle the bioctlysts for more runs, re lso reported. 2. Results nd discussion Dehydroscorbic cid Tyrosinse 2.1. ptimiztion of tyrosinse immobiliztion The immobiliztion of tyrosinse ws performed with the commercilly vilble epoxy-crylic resin Eupergit Ò C250L using modifiction of previously reported procedures. 23 The rtio between the enzyme nd the resin (mg/g), the incubtion time nd ph were investigted to optimize the yield of immobiliztion. As generl procedure, the enzyme ( mg, IU) ws suspended in N-phosphte buffer (ph ) ( ml) in the presence of defined mount of resin (1.0 g) for h t room temperture. The immobilized tyrosinse (Tyro/E) ws wshed with wter to remove excess of protein nd treted with glycine to block residul epoxy-groups (Fig. 2, pnel A). The effectiveness of the immobiliztion procedure ws investigted in terms of immobiliztion yield (Eq. 1, where U is the totl ctivity of enzyme dded in the solution nd U r is the ctivity of the CH 2 CH H Ascorbic cid Figure 1.

When the mount of enzyme ws further incresed, the recovered ctivity yield decresed to 31%; nevertheless, the bound protein ws slightly higher (entry 5 vs entry 4). Similr results were obtined for the immobiliztion of cyclodextrin glucosyltrnsferse 25 nd lipse 26 on Eupergit Ò, probbly becuse the close pcking of the enzymes on the support surfce limits the ccess of substrte. nce defined the optimum vlue of the enzyme/support rtio, the immobiliztion ws performed t different times (24 nd 48 h). Dt reported in Tble 1 show the highest immobiliztion yield t 48 h (77% nd 66%), even if longer incubtion time led to reduction of the ctivity yield (30% nd 38%, respectively) (entry 6 vs entry 4). The influence of ph on the immobiliztion procedure ws lso studied in the rnge of The optimum binding ws chieved with sodium phosphte buffer t ph 7.0 (Tble 1 entries 5 vs 7 9). With the im to further increse the stbility of Tyro/E, the LbL technique ws pplied by coting Tyro/E through sequentil deposition of chrged polyelectrolytes.

The procedure ws repeted until the formtion of three lyers (Fig. 2, pnel B). The immobilized LbL enzyme (Tyro/E-LbL) retined bout 87% of the ctivity with reference to Tyro/E. A set of scnning electron microscopy (SEM) photogrphs showing the morphology of the surfce of Tyro/E nd Tyro/E-LbL prticles re reported in Figure 3. Tyro/E shows prticles with regulr shpe nd n verge dimeter vlue of lm(fig. 3, pnel A). A low number of irregulr frgments ws observed, which re probbly formed by mechnicl dmge of prticles during the smple preprtion. At lrger mgnifiction the prticles show n irregulr surfce chrcterized by grumes of different dimension (Fig. 3, pnel B). The SEM photogrphs of group of prticles (verge dimeter of lm) nd mgnifiction of the cross-section of single prticle of Tyro/E-LbL re shown in Fig. 3, pnel C nd D. In this ltter cse the ultrthin coting lyers cover the surfce of the prticle. Both immobilized tyrosinses were chrcterized for their ph nd storge stbility, kinetic properties nd reusbility Effect of ph on tyrosinse ctivity The ph/ctivity curves relted to free (Tyro) nd immobilized tyrosinse (Tyro/E nd Tyro/E-LbL) t 25 C re shown in Figure 4. Irrespective to immobiliztion procedure, tyrosinse showed the optimum ph 7.0 tht is the sme vlue selected for the immobiliztion of the enzyme. Noteworthy, Tyro/E nd Tyro/E-LbL were more ctive thn the free enzyme in the rnge of ph studied. Chnges in ph-ctivity profile fter immobiliztion, eventully involving the shift of the optiml ph vlue, hve been reported during immobiliztion of tyrosinse on others support. 14, Storge stbility The storge stbility of free nd immobilized tyrosinse ws evluted by storing the enzyme in N-phosphte buffer t 20, 4 nd 25 C for 25 dys (Fig. 5, pnels A, B nd C, respectively). The ctivity ws then mesured t specific times t room temperture by the dopchrome method. At ech of the temperture studied, Tyro/E nd Tyro/E-LbL were more stble thn free enzyme, being the Tyro/E-LbL the most stble bioctlyst. To further confirm the integrity of Tyro/E-LbL over time, novel SEM nlysis of prticles t time zero (just prepred) nd fter two months upon storge t 4 C ws crried out t higher mgnifiction (15,000). As reported in Figure 6, the surfce morphology of the prticles Figure 4. ph optim of free (Tyro) nd immobilized tyrosinse (Tyro/E nd Tyro/E- LbL). Tyrosinse ctivity ws determined using L-Tyrosine s substrte, ph (pnels A nd B) is not significntly ltered during the storge period. In ddition, the stbility of the system ws confirmed by Trnsmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) nlysis of section of the prticles fter two months of storge, which shows substntil integrity of the lyers (Fig. 6, pnel C). This fct, coupled with the mintennce of the ctlytic ctivity for multiple subsequent rections (see below) confirms substntil stbility of the system. The enhnced stbility of enzyme ctivities within LbL ssembly ws previously discussed in detils by nd et l. 28 These uthors reported tht glucose oxidse ssembled lterntely with polyions retined bout 80% of ntive enzyme ctivity, thus suggesting tht the LbL procedures did not cuse significnt denturtion. Also in tht cse, fter the LbL coting, the enzyme mintined its ctivity for severl dys Kinetic ssy Kinetic prmeters of free nd immobilized tyrosinses were exmined by mesuring the enzyme ctivity t different concentrtions of L-tyrosine (L-Tyr; rnge lm) nd plotting dt to double reciprocl plot (Linewever Burk plot). 29 Irrespective to procedures used for the immobiliztion, V mx decresed nd K m incresed for supported tyrosinses, leding to prtil reduction of the ctlytic efficiency (V mx /K m ) with respect to free enzyme (Tble 2). Similr trends in K m vlues were reported for tyrosinse immobilized on other crriers nd re ttributed to ltertion of three-dimensionl structure nd mss trnsfer limittions Recycle nd reusbility Recycle nd reusbility ssy ws performed using L-Tyr s substrte. The oxidtions were followed spectrophotometriclly t 475 nm. After reching bsorbnce plteu, the immobilized bioctlyst ws recovered, wshed nd reused with fresh dded substrte. ne unit of enzyme ctivity ws defined s the increse in bsorbnce of t defined wvelength, temperture nd ph. For successive runs, the enzyme ctivity mesured in the first oxidtion ws used s the reference vlue. As shown in Tble 3, Tyro/ E-LbL ws more stble thn Tyro/E, retining 75% of ctivity fter 5 runs. This behvior suggest tht the LbL coting process effectively stbilizes the enzyme from inctivting gents. Different exmples of the stbiliztion effect of LbL re reported xidtion of phenols With the im to evlute the synthetic relevnce of immobilized tyrosinses, lrge pnel of phenols (Figure 7) ws oxidized, including pr-cresol 1, 4-ethyl phenol 2, 4-tert-butyl phenol 3, 4-sec-butyl phenol 4, 2,4-di-tert-butyl phenol 5, met-cresol 6, 3,4-dimethyl phenol 7, 4-chloro phenol 8, 4-chloro-2-methyl phenol 9, 2-methoxy-4-methyl phenol 10, 2-methoxy phenol 11, 3- (4-hydroxyphenyl)propionic cid 12, 4-hydroxyphenylcetic cid 13, bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)methne 14 nd tyrosol 15. The oxidtion of 1 (0.05 mmol) with free tyrosinse (Tyro; 263 IU) in buffer (5.0 ml) ws performed in the presence of AA in previously optimized concentrtion (1.5 equiv). 32 For low soluble phenols 3, 5, 14, the substrtes were dissolved in CH 3 CN (1.0 ml) nd then dded to the rection mixture (see next). Rections were performed t room temperture for 24 h. Under these experimentl conditions ctechol 1 ws obtined s the only recovered product in quntittive yield nd conversion of substrte (Scheme 1, Tble 4, entry 1) Tyro/E nd Tyro/E-LbL performed in similr wy ffording 1 in quntittive yield nd conversion of substrte (Scheme 1, Tble 4, entries 2 nd 3).

The oxidtion of 2 confirmed the high rectivity of immobilized tyrosinses, the ctechol 2 being gin obtined s the only recovered product in quntittive yield nd conversion of substrte (Scheme 1, Tble 4, entries 4 6). Noteworthy, Tyro/E nd Tyro/E-LbL were efficient nd selective bioctlysts lso in the oxidtion of pr-lkyl substituted phenols chrcterized by high steric hindrnce, s in the cse of bulky substituted phenols 3 nd 4. As reported in Tble 4, the oxidtion of 3 required the ddition smll mount of CH 3 CN (0.1 ml) to increse the solubility of substrte. In these ltter cses, irrespective to experimentl conditions, ctechols 3 nd 4 were synthesized in yield higher thn 90% (Scheme 1, Tble 4, entries

In these ltter cses, twice mount of enzyme ws required (526 IU) to produce ctechols 1 nd 7 in 42 48% nd 80 84% yield, respectively, Tyro/E-LbL being the best bioctlyst (Scheme 2, Tble 5, entries 2, 3, 5 nd 6).The ctechols were obtined s the only recovered products. The highest yield observed in the cse of 7 suggests tht the inhibitory effect of the met-substituent cn be prtilly blnced by the presence of pr-substituent with n inductive electrondonor effect.

Tretment of 8 with Tyro/E nd Tyro/E-LbL (263 IU) fforded ctechol 8 in quntittive yield nd conversion of substrte (Scheme 2, Tble 5, entries 8, 9). A similr result ws obtined with the free enzyme (Tble 5, entry 7). As expected, twice mount of tyrosinse (526 IU) ws required for the oxidtion of 9, due to the presence of the ortho-substituent. Despite this request, the ctechol 9 ws isolted in high yield (Scheme 2, Tble 5, entries 11 nd 12), confirming beneficil role of the electron-donor substituent in the pr-position of the romtic ring. Note tht, phenol derivtives chrcterized by n electron-donor ortho-substituent, s in the cse of 2-methoxy-4-methyl phenol 10 nd 2-methoxy phenol 11, while requesting twice mount of enzyme (526 IU), fforded the corresponding ctechols 10 nd 11 in significnt yield (Scheme 3, Tble 6, entries 2, 3, 5 nd 6).

New heterogeneous tyrosinse bioctlysts were synthesized by immobiliztion on Eupergit Ò C250L nd LbL coting with polyelectrolyte. With respect to the free enzyme used s reference, tyrosinse retined the ctlytic ctivity nd selectivity fter immobiliztion on Eupergit Ò C250L nd successive coting by LbL technique. It is interesting to note, tht in ll of the cses studied, Tyro/E-LbL ws more efficient thn Tyro/E, suggesting stbiliztion effect exerted by the polyelectrolyte coting. Tyro/E nd Tyro/E-LbL were stble enough to perform t lest five recycling experiments with similr conversion nd selectivity. The stbility of tyrosinse under storge conditions t different tempertures ws lso found to be incresed in the presence of the support. Agin, Tyro/E-LbL ws the most stble nd reusble ctlyst. The structure of the interction between the Eupergit-supported enzyme nd the polyelectrolyte coting hs not been studied in detil, becuse of the greter complexity of this system compred to the previously described film in which the enzyme is immobilized directly within the LbL coting. However, the mintennce of the ctlytic ctivity for multiple runs by Tyro/E-LbL, b
8 M. Guzzroni et l. / Bioorg. Med. Chem. 20 (2012) suggests tht the system does not undergo structurl chnges. 46 About the selectivity of the oxidtions, pr-substituted phenols were efficiently oxidized, even in the cse of highly encumbering lkyl pr-substituents. Met-substituted nd ortho-substituted phenols required twice mount of enzyme to yield the corresponding ctechols in high yield, probbly due both to the effect exerted by the substituent on the electronic distribution of the romtic ring 33 nd the steric encumbering for the formtion of the first intermedite with the Cu tom in the ctive site of the enzyme. Since ctechols re biologiclly ctive compounds difficult to synthesize by trditionl chemicl procedure under environmentl friendly conditions, the use of immobilized tyrosinses open novel synthetic lterntive for this interesting fmily of substnces. 4.
