Microbial physiology of sidechain degradation of sterols

Abstract

A large number of valuable starting materials for steroids synthesis (e.g. 4-androstene-3,17-dione, 1,4-androstadiene-3,17-dione, 9α-hydroxy-4-androsten-17-one) have been produced by microbial transformation methods. This review helps to evaluate the microbial physiological interest of the widely used sterol sidechain degradation processes. Four inducible… (More)
