Highly regioselective hydroxylation of polydatin, a resveratrol glucoside, for one-step synthesis of astringin, a piceatannol glucoside, by P450 BM3.


Enzymatic conversion of natural glycosides to their corresponding hydroxylated products using cytochromes P450 has significant advantages over synthetic chemistry and even enzyme-catalyzed glycosylation of chemicals. At present, the basic strategy for making glycosides of stilbenoid compounds is to use the glycosylation activity of enzymes, such as… (More)
