研究

计算化学大牛Kendall Houk实验室获得的博士学位。当时,其博士的研究内容是使用QM/MM进行酶促反应的解析。自己独立后,主要集中于小分子化合物的计算。特别是关于天然产物的生物合成反应机理的理论计算。

 

  • 着眼于碳阳离子的萜烯生物合成计算

萜烯是由甲羟戊酸途径产生的具有异戊二烯C5结构单元的化合物。虽然GPP、FPP、GGDP等起始原料不同,然而它们进行的生物合成路径有一个共同点,都是以环化酶的活性中心存在的Mg进行二磷酸消除开始的反应。二磷酸的消除产生的碳正离子的稳定化过程是反应进行的驱动力。

(图引用自文献[1])

而且,在萜烯的环化反应中,经常发生氢转移。Tantillo等人的理论计算结果表明其实这不是氢转移,实际上是质子转移[2]。

另外,虽然广泛认为反应的过渡态,反应中间体的碳正离子为3级碳正离子,而报道表明实际上是离域形式的非典型的碳正离子存在。
