The biotransformation of limonene by the basidiomycete Pleurotus sapidus yielded cis/trans-carveol and carvone as the main products. The transformation period was extended from 4 days after direct addition to 12 days by gas phase addition of the substrate. After 2 days of transformation, 97% of the substrate had accumulated in the mycelium, while only 3% were present in the culture medium. Substrate toxicity led to a decrease of dry matter. Adaptation of the precultures with small amounts of… CONTINUE READING
