Recently, there has been a great deal of remarkable interest in finding bioactive compounds from nutritional foods to replace synthetic compounds. In particular, ortho-dihydroxyisoflavones and glycitein are of growing scientific interest owing to their attractive biological properties. In this study, 7,8-ortho-dihydroxyisoflavone, 6,7-ortho-dihydroxyisoflavone, 3',4'-ortho-dihydroxyisoflavone Cited by: 4. and herbal products have been exposed to the microbial bio-catalysis as an attempt to find further lively and fewer toxic products. Here is a review of the microbial conversion of some of the natural products and extracts; in addition to that we list some microbial transformation of bioactive compounds from medicinal plants’ origin in Table 1.   Microbial biotransformation is a pertinent strategy to overcome difficulties and problems arising from the chemical synthesis, in order to have access to regiospecific and stereospecific compounds.   Biotechnology of Bioactive Compounds will be an informative text for undergraduate and graduate students of bio-medicinal chemistry who are keen to explore the potential of bioactive natural products. It also provides useful information for scientists working in various research fields where natural products have a primary role.

Microbial Transformation of Bioactive Compounds and Production of ortho-Dihydroxyisoflavones and Glycitein from Natural Fermented Soybean Paste Changhyun Roh Division of Biotechnology, Advanced Radiation Technology Institute (ARTI), Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI), , Sinjeong-dong, Jeongeup, Jeonbuk , Korea; E-Mail: rk. The book discusses a range of biotechnologically valuable bioactive compounds and secondary metabolites that have been derived from plant and microorganisms from various ecological niches. It also reviews the latest developments in the field of genomics, bioinformatics and industrial fermentation for harnessing the microbial products for.   About this book. Deliberately breaking with the classical biology-centered description of marine organisms and their products, this reference emphasizes microbial technology over basic biology, setting it apart from its predecessors. As such, it systematically covers the technology behind high-value compounds for use as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals or cosmetics, from prospecting to .   Microbial transformation By: Bijaya Kumar Uprety 1 hydrolysis, condensation, isomerization, formation of new C-C bonds, synthesis of chiral compounds and reversal of hydrolytic reactions. •Among these, oxidation, isomerisation and hydrolysis reactions are more commonly obser 4 5.

  Introduction. Living organisms are a huge source for a variety of unusual secondary metabolites. The bulk of these metabolites has been found in plants along with the involvement of microorganism (Hadjithomas et al., ).These bioactive compounds are mainly derived from bacteria residing in internal tissues of plants and there are several genus involved in the production of .

Steroids constitute a natural product class of compounds that is widely distributed throughout nature present in bile salts, adrenal-cortical and sex-hormones, insect molting hormones, sapogenins, alkaloids and some antibiotics. 16 In the first microbial biotransformation of steroids was carried out. 17 Testosterone was produced from.
