Description

Biotransformation reactions using whole cell or organisms have been extensively studied. Most of the studies have focused on producing and characterizing the enantiospecific products. Benefits of biotransformation reactions include the use of water and other environmentally friendly conditions. We decided to focus on a single reaction to determine the best reaction conditions for the biotransformation, explore possible antimicrobial activity of the product, and isolate and characterize the protein involved in catalyzing the reaction.
