Synthesis of optically pure S-sulfoxide by Escherichia coli transformant cells coexpressing the P450 monooxygenase and glucose dehydrogenase genes


A cytochrome P450 monooxygenase (P450SMO) from Rhodococcus sp. can catalyze asymmetric oxygenation of sulfides to S-sulfoxides. However, P450SMO-catalyzed biotransformations require a constant supply of NAD(P)H, the expense of which constitutes a great hindrance for this enzyme application. In this study, we investigated the asymmetric oxygenation of… (More)
