Borneol Dehydrogenase from Pseudomonas sp. Strain TCU-HL1 Catalyzes the Oxidation of (+)-Borneol and Its Isomers to Camphor
ABSTRACT Most plant-produced monoterpenes can be degraded by soil microorganisms. Borneol is a plant terpene that is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. Neither microbial borneolExpand

Resolution of isoborneol and its isomers by GC/MS to identify "synthetic" and "semi-synthetic" borneol products.
Borneol is a plant terpene commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine. Optically pure (+)-borneol and (-)-borneol can be obtained by extraction from the plants Dipterocarpaceae and BlumeaExpand

Production of optically pure (-)-borneol by Pseudomonas monteilii TCU-CK1 and characterization of borneol dehydrogenase involved.
(-)-Borneol is a bicyclic plant secondary metabolite. Optically pure (-)-borneol can only be obtained from plants, and demand exceeds supply in China. In contrast, chemically synthesized borneolExpand

Cloning, expression, identification and characterization of borneol dehydrogenase isozymes in Pseudomonas sp. TCU-HL1.
Borneol is a bicyclic plant monoterpene. It can be degraded by soil microorganisms through the conversion of borneol dehydrogenase (BDH) and a known camphor degradation pathway. Recombinant BDH fromExpand
SIMULTANEOUS ANALYSIS OF PLASMA LACTATE AND PYRUVATE IN WHOLE BLOOD USING A UV/VISIBLE SPECTROPHOTOMETER; APPLICATION IN HYPOVOLEMIC SHOCK AND HYPOXIA
Background: Unavailability of pyruvate quantification at the majority of the National Health Laboratory Service (NHLS) laboratories in South Africa prevents patient’s access to a lactate-to-pyruvateExpand
Structural characterization of borneol dehydrogenase from Pseudomonas sp. TCU-HL1
The structure of a Pseudomonas borneol dehydrogenase was determined at 1.84 Å resolution. Major differences from its homologues in the C-terminal helices and the associated loops may suggestExpand
