Formation of coumarines during the degradation of alkyl substituted aromatic oil components by the yeast Trichosporon asahii


In this study, we investigated the ability of the yeast Trichosporon asahii SBUG-Y 833 to assimilate phenylalkanes with alkyl chain lengths from 7 to 12 carbon atoms, and we describe for the first time the formation of coumarines via a novel degradation pathway other than the normal terminal and ß-oxidation pathway of the alkyl residues. Besides benzoic… (More)
