4-Deoxy-L-erythro-hexoseulose uronic acid (DEH) reductase is a key enzyme in alginate utilizing metabolism, but the number of characterized DEH reductase is quite limited. In this study, novel two DEH reductases, VsRed-1 and VsRed-2, were identified in marine bacterium Vibrio splendidus, and the recombinant enzymes were expressed in an Escherichia coli system and purified by Ni-NTA chromatography. The optimal pH and temperature of the recombinant VsRed-1 and VsRed-2 were pH 7.5, 30 °C, and pH 7.0, 35 °C, respectively. The specific activities of VsRed-1 (776 U/mg for NADH) and VsRed-2 (176 U/mg for NADPH) were the highest among the DEH reductases reported so far. We also demonstrated that DEH could be converted to L-lactate with a yield of 76.7 and 81.9% in E. coli cell-free system containing VsRed-1 and VsRed-2 enzymes, respectively, indicating that two DEH reductases can be employed for production of biofuels and bio-chemicals from brown macroalgae biomass.
