Halogenation of natural products have been achieved through chemical or enzymatic approaches with some limitations such as selectivity and multiple steps. To circumvent these limitations, we have coupled both approaches by utilizing the Horner-Wadworth-Eammon (HWE) reaction, a prenyl transferase and an isomerocyclase that originate from cyanobacteria strains, to generate seven halo-substituted 12-epi-fischerindoles. The crystal structure of the prenyl transferase was also used to gain insight on the promiscuity of this enzyme and aided in the optimization of the enzymatic synthesis of halo-substituted 12-epi-fischerindoles.
