Steroids

Steroids' transformations in Penicillium notatum culture.


PMID 15763598

Abstract

The application of Penicillium notatum genus for biotransformations of steroids has been investigated. The reactions observed include insertion of an oxygen atom into D-ring of steroids, 15alpha-hydroxylation of 17alpha-methyl testosterone derivatives, ester bond hydrolysis, and degradation of a testosterone derivatives side chain. Microbial production of testolactones, the biologically active compounds, was also achieved using this strain in up to 98% yield.
