CYP153A6 is a well-studied terminal alkane hydroxylase which has previously been expressed in Pseudomonas putida and Escherichia coli by using the pCom8 plasmid. In this study, CYP153A6 was successfully expressed in E. coli BL21(DE3) by cloning the complete operon from Mycobacterium sp. HXN-1500, also encoding the ferredoxin reductase and ferredoxin, into(More)
Candida apicola belongs to a group of yeasts producing surface-active glycolipids consisting of sophorose and long-chain (ω)- or (ω-1)-hydroxy fatty acids. Hydroxylation of the fatty acids in this strain is likely catalyzed by cytochrome P450 monooxygenases (P450), which require reducing equivalents delivered via a cytochrome P450-diflavin reductase (CPR).(More)
Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenases (BVMOs) are biocatalysts that convert ketones to esters. Due to their high regio-, stereo- and enantioselectivity and ability to catalyse these reactions under mild conditions, they have gained interest as alternatives to chemical Baeyer-Villiger catalysts. Despite their widespread occurrence within the fungal kingdom, most of(More)
