The biotransformation of 6,7-epoxygeraniol by resting cells of selected fungi was investigated. The main product obtained from the transformation in Rhodotorula glutinis and R. marina cultures was 6,7-epoxynerol (5–48% of chloroform extracts), whereas Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Candida parapsilosis and C. kefyr reduced this substrate to 6,7-epoxycitronellol (30–33% of chloroform extracts). Cultures of Yarrowia lipolytica, Botrytis cinerea and S. cerevisiae promoted the cyclisation of 6,7… CONTINUE READING
