Studies on Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of steroids: DHEA and pregnenolone D-lactonization pathways in Penicillium camemberti AM83.

Abstract

Penicillium camemberti AM83 strain is able to carry out effective Baeyer-Villiger type oxidation of DHEA, pregnenolone, androstenedione and progesterone to testololactone. Pregnenolone and DHEA underwent oxidation to testololactone via two routes: through 4-en-3-ketones (progesterone and/or androstenedione respectively) or through 3beta-hydroxy-17a-oxa-d… (More)
