BACKGROUND Cytochrome P450 monooxygenases--able to regio- and stereoselectively hydroxylate non-activated carbon atoms--are important enzymes for the synthesis of valuable intermediates in the production of steroid hormones in the pharmaceutical industry. However, up to now only a few bacterial enzymes able to hydroxylate steroids have been reported. CYP154C5 from Nocardia farcinica IFM 10152, a bacterial P450 monooxygenase, was previously shown to convert testosterone to 16… CONTINUE READING
