The strain of Mycobacterium sp. VKM Ac-1817D forms 9alpha-hydroxy-androst-4-ene-3,17-dione (9-OH-AD) as a major product from sitosterol. The formation of 9-OH-AD was accompanied with its partial destruction due to residual steroid-1-dehydrogenase (St1DH) activity. The activity was found to be induced by androst-4-ene-3,17-dione (AD), while other(More)
The synthesis of 3beta-hydroxy-androsta-5,7-dien-17-one from 3beta-hydroxy-androst-5-en-17-one (dehydroepiandrosterone, DHEA) via microbial 7alpha-hydroxylation has been accomplished. At the first stage, 3beta,7alpha-dihydroxy-androst-5-en-17-one was obtained in high yield (71.2%) using a strain of Gibberella zeae VKM F-2600, which was first applied for(More)
A nonlinear spectrometric method for determination of the stability constant (Ks) for cyclodextrin complex with steroid was developed. The method is based on calculation of the parameters of competitive cyclodextrin complexation by simultaneous fitting of two types of curves. Those of the first type are the dependencies of absorbance of methyl orange(More)
The transformation of dehydroepiandrosterone by Spicaria fumoso-rosea VKM F-881 produced 7α- and 7β-hydroxy-dehydroepiandrosterone, 3β,7α-dihydroxy-17a-oxa-D-homo-androst-5-en-17-one, and 3β,7β-dihydroxy-17a-oxa-D-homo-androst-5-en-17-one. The yield of the main product—3β,7β-dihydroxy-17a-oxa-D-homo-androst-5-en-17-one—was 49.5–72 mol % at substrate(More)
