Protective Effect of Biomass Components Against Interfacial Inactivation of a-Pinene Oxide Lyase from Pseudomonas rhodesiae CIP 107491

a-Pinene oxide lyase is able to catalyze the cleavage of both rings of a-pinene oxide to form cis-2-methyl-5-isopropylhexa-2,5-dienal (isonovalal) with no cofactor requirements. This bioconversion, when carried out under biphasic conditions (water/hexadecane) by Pseudomonas rhodesiae CIP 107491, allows the accumulation of a very high concentration of the… CONTINUE READING
