Microbial Resolution of alpha-Hydroxy Acids by Enantiospecifically Dehydrogenating Bacteria from Soil.

Abstract

Thirty-three bacterial strains were isolated from soil, utilizing optically asymmetric degradation of dl-2-hydroxy-4-methylpentanoic acid (dl-HMPA) as the screening probe. Those strains were distributed in the following group and genera: Coryneform and Bacillus, Pseudomonas, and Streptomyces. Among them, the most potent strains, Bacillus freudenreichii NRS… (More)
