Approximately 700 cultures of various types were examined for their ability to hydroxylate acetanilide. The major product formed by unidentified Streptomyces species RJTS-539 was identified as 4'-hydroxyacetanilide (N-acetyl-p-aminophenol). This culture gave a peak yield of 405 mg per liter from 1,000 mg of acetanilide per liter. Considerably lower yields(More)
Two hundred eighty-five fungi, including 100 basidiomycetes and 35 yeasts, 75 actinomycetes, and 40 bacteria were screened for their ability to convert 5-anilino-1,2,3,4-thiatriazole (AT) to 5-(p-hydroxyanilino)-1,2,3,4-thiatriazole (p-HT). Eleven cultures were found that formed p-HT, which was isolated and whose structure was determined. Aspergillus(More)
