Growth and Polysaccharide Production by Methylocystis parvus OBBP on Methanol
Methylocystis parvus OBBP, an obligate methylotroph originally isolated as a methane-utilizing bacterium, was cultivated on methanol as a sole source of carbon and an extracellular viscous heteropolysaccharide was produced during growth.
Study of TAG ethanolysis to 2-MAG by immobilized Candida antarctica lipase and synthesis of symmetrically structured TAG
Regiospecific ethanolysis of homogenous TAG with immobilized Candida antarctica lipase (Novozym 435) was studied using trioleoylglycerol (TO) as a model substrate. Optimization of the reactant weight…
Fatty acid bioconversions by Pseudomonas aeruginosa PR3
This is the first report on the production of 7,10,12-trihydroxy unsaturated fatty acid by microbial transformation.

A microbial isolate, Flavobacterium sp. strain DS5, produces 10-ketostearic acid (10-KSA) from oleic acid in 85% yield. This is the first report on this type of reaction catalyzed by a Flavobacterium…
Protocatechuate 3, 4-dioxygenase from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus.
Protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase (PCD) from p-hydroxybenzoate-induced cells of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus was purified by heat and protamine sulfate treatment, ammonium sulfate fractionation,…
Catechol 1,2-dioxygenase from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus: purification and properties
Procedures for the purification of catechol 1,2-dioxygenase from extracts of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus strain ADP-96 are described. The purified enzyme was homogeneous as judged by…

Resting cell suspensions of seven Nocardia species catalyzed the production of 10-hydroxystearic acid from oleic acid via hydration of the double bond, specific for fatty acids with cis unsaturation at the 9 position.
Production of a new compound, 7,10-dihydroxy-8-(E)-octadecenoic acid from oleic acid byPseudomonas sp. PR3
A new compound, 7,10-dihydroxy-8-(E)-octadecenoic acid (DOD) was produced from oleic acid by a new strain of Pseudomonas sp.
