The microbial transformation of the 17alpha-ethynyl-17beta-hydroxyandrost-4-en-3-one (1) (ethisterone) and 17alpha-ethyl-17beta-hydroxyandrost-4-en-3-one (2) by the fungi Cephalosporium aphidicola and Cunninghamella elegans were investigated. Incubation of compound 1 with C. aphidicola afforded oxidized derivative,(More)
Microbial transformation of 6-dehydroprogesterone (1) with Aspergillus niger yielded three new metabolites, including 6β-chloro-7α,11α-dihydroxypregna-4-ene-3,20-dione (2), 7α-chloro-6β,11α-dihydroxypregna-4-ene-3,20-dione (3), and 6α,7α-epoxy-11α-hydroxypregna-4-ene-3,20-dione (4), and two known metabolites; 6α,7α-epoxypregna-4-ene-3,20-dione (5), and(More)
Microbial transformation of the anti-inflammatory steroid medrysone (1) was carried out for the first time with the filamentous fungi Cunninghamella blakesleeana (ATCC 8688a), Neurospora crassa (ATCC 18419), and Rhizopus stolonifer (TSY 0471). The objective was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory potential of the substrate (1) and its metabolites. This(More)
