Glycerol as a by-product of biodiesel production is an attractive precursor for producing d-glyceric acid. Here, we demonstrate the successful production of d-glyceric acid based on glycerol via glyceraldehyde in a two-step enzyme reaction with the FAD-dependent alditol oxidase from Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2). The hydrogen peroxide generated in the(More)
BACKGROUND Since volatile and rising cost factors such as energy, raw materials and market competitiveness have a significant impact on the economic efficiency of biotechnological bulk productions, industrial processes need to be steadily improved and optimized. Thereby the current production hosts can undergo various limitations. To overcome those(More)
