Pilzliche Peroxygenasen: der Schlüssel zu C-H-Hydroxylierungen und mehr?


Fungal peroxygenases represent an exciting new enzyme class for stereo -
selective hydroxylation reactions. They are capable of the oxyfunctionalisation
of a large, diverse scope of substrates including alkanes and
steroids as well as the heteroatoms sulfur and nitrogen. The outstanding
activities and stabilities as well as their reliance on hydrogen peroxide as
co-substrate renders it a highly interesting biocatalyst.
