Four flavoproteins from the old yellow enzyme (OYE) family, pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETNR) reductase, N-ethylmalelimide reductase (NEMR), morphinone reductase (MorR) and estrogen-binding protein (EBPI), exhibited a broad substrate tolerance by accepting conjugated enals, enones, imides, dicarboxylic acids and esters, as well as a nitroalkene and therefore can be employed for the asymmetric bioreduction of carbon-carbon double (C=C) bonds. In particular, morphinone reductase and estrogen-binding protein often showed a complementary stereochemical preference in comparison to that Of previously investigated OYEs.
