Engineering Microbes to Yield Fluorinated Compounds: A Huge Leap Forward
Fluorine atoms find their way into modern drugs and pharmaceuticals with alarming regularity. Their unique behavior make them invaluable for medicinals. Fluorine containing drugs have been hard to make...until now.
Drugs, medicines - they're almost exclusively organic compounds, meaning they all contain the element of carbon. Through decades of refinement and rapid screening of possible drug candidates, drug researchers have often found that organic molecules containing the atom fluorine - element #19 on the Periodic Table - have improved bio-availability (the body can access the drug more efficiently) as well as efficiency at fighting whatever disorder the molecule is designed to combat.
What makes fluorine so special? It's part of a loose group of elements known as the halogens, sharing behavior with atoms such as iodine, bromine, and chlorine. However, out of all of these, fluorine is the "hungriest" for electrons, a phenomenon that chemists call electronegativity (reference 1). Uncombined with another element, fluorine forms an extremely toxic, explosive, hazardous gas that has claimed the lives of many chemists over the years. However, once attached to an organic molecule (which can be an extremely difficult task to accomplish), it lends stability and bioreactivity. It's hard to imagine something so reactive being so stable when attached to carbon, but Teflon - a material that can withstand almost any chemical attack - is nothing more than long chains of carbons decorated with fluorine atoms. This unique stability once formed but unstability in its native state may explain that, while halogenated natural compounds are normally found everywhere, natural organofluorine compounds are extremely rare - only 5 examples are known to exist. The bond between carbon and fluorine simply requires too much energy to feasibly make, and fluorine gas is too unstable to exist for long by itself.
Researchers constantly saw the same pattern emerging: fluorinated medicinals were more effective. However, how could these molecules be formed in the lab in large enough quantities to be useful? How could synthetic chemists harness this volatile, toxic element and attach it to their molecule of interest?
A turning point came in 2002, when a fluorinating enzyme (a fluorinase) was isolated from a soil bacterium: in particular, Streptomyces cattleya (Chemical and Engineering News, Volume 88, Number 5, February 1st 2020, page 7). This enzyme would potentially allow the easy attachment of fluorine to molecules of medical importance. The implications were enormous. For the first time, scientists would have the capability to introduce this fluorine-bond-making gene into useful bacteria and then let Nature do all the difficult bond-forming reaction steps.
This has now been accomplished, and is described by David O'Hagan of Scotlands University of St. Andrews in the Journal of Natural Products (still in print at the time of writing; available at www.acs.org for subscribers). By taking the bacterium Salinospora tropica (found in ocean sediments, and known to produce anti-cancer and antibiotic drugs) and replacing one of its genes with the corresponding fluorinase enzyme from the afore-mentioned soil bacterium, the engineered microbe was able to produce its anti-cancer medications augmented with attached fluorine molecules. A stunning piece of applied research. These new drugs have the potential to not only lower the toxicity of the produced medications, but also enhance their activity, according to Guy. T. Carter, assistant vice president of chemical technologies at Pfizer.
As a scientist with my background, I find this discovery to be the opening of the floodgates to a whole slew of new, more powerful, less toxic medicinals. I certainly find it worthwhile of your attention as a "Latest Tech Trend". Thanks to this discovery, we may all eventually be enjoying safer, more effective medications that fight our most terrible and debilitating diseases.
