A comparative study was conducted on two biocatalysts, resting Rhodococcus erythropolis cells and soluble cholesterol (CL) oxidase, both catalysing CL oxidation in a cyclodextrin (CD) medium. The enzyme-mediated sterol oxidation was clearly enhanced by the dimethylated β-cyclodextrin (Dimeb), as in the microbial oxidation. However, the microbial transformation was subject to a larger enhancement effect (enhancement factor of approx. 6) than the enzymic one (enhancement factor of approx. 2… CONTINUE READING
