Epoxidation of Short-Chain Alkenes by Resting-Cell Suspensions of Propane-Grown Bacteria
TLDR
Results from inhibition studies indicate that a propane monooxygenase system catalyzes both the epoxidation and hydroxylation reactions, which are located in the soluble fraction obtained after 80,000 x g centrifugation. Expand
Microbial oxidation of gaseous hydrocarbons: epoxidation of C2 to C4 n-alkenes by methylotrophic bacteria
TLDR
Results from inhibition studies indicate that the same monooxygenase system catalyzes both the hydroxylation and the epoxidation reactions in the cell-free particulate fraction precipitated between 10,000 and 40,000 x g centrifugation. Expand
Synthesis of chiral pharmaceutical intermediates by biocatalysis
Chiral intermediates were prepared by biocatalytic processes for the chemical synthesis of four pharmaceutical drug candidates. These include: (i) the microbial reduction of 3,5-dioxo-6-(benzyloxy)Expand
Microbial degradation of 2-alkylalkanoic acids
Abstract2-Alkylalkanoic acids are shown to be biodegraded completely by aPseudomonas species provided that the two paraffin chains are unbranched. Evidence is presented that the dissimilation ofExpand
Bacterial oxidation of cycloparaffinic hydrocarbons
TLDR
A series of 10 branched-chain alkanes and 4 cycloalkanes were employed individually as elective culture substrates for bacteria in soil and metabolic products identified are consistent with the formation of a cyclomonoalcohol as the immediate precursor of the ketone. Expand
Biodegradation of Natural Rubber and Related Compounds: Recent Insights into a Hardly Understood Catabolic Capability of Microorganisms
TLDR
This work has shown that the first proteins involved in microbial rubber degradation have been identified, and it is believed that these proteins are involved in the biosynthesis of rubber latex. Expand
Diversity, Function, and Biocatalytic Applications of Alkane Oxygenases
This chapter focuses on the aerobic degradation of hydrocarbons, with an emphasis on alkanes, and the applications of enzymes involved in these processes for biocatalysis. Yeasts and fungi are oftenExpand
Epoxidation of gaseous alkenes by aRhodococcus sp.
SummaryA propane-oxidising strain ofRhodococcus rhodochrous produced 1,2-epoxyalkanes from short chain terminal alkenes at rates equivalent to or greater than many previously described systems. ItExpand

Bloom and Shull (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 77:5767, 1955) observed that microorganisms convert isolated double bonds into oxides rather than alcohols. Through a limited number of experiments, their dataExpand
Preliminary Experiments on a Microbial Fuel Cell
TLDR
Experiments were initiated to determine whether microbes using a hydrocarbon as food could generate electrical energy, but when microbes or glucose oxidase were added to a solution of glucose, electrical output was observed, confirming in part previous observations. Expand
BACTERIAL HYDROCARBON OXIDATION
TLDR
Chemical evidence has been reported which strongly suggests that methanol, formaldehyde, and formic acid are produced from methane by Methanomonas methanooxidans and Pseudomonas methanica. Expand
