This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:The project is aimed in development of a new biotechnological process for Baeyer-Villiger biooxidations. The process will use a new generation of recombinant bacterial cells E. coli with Baeyer-Villiger monooxigenases (BVMO) catalyzing enantioselective Baeyer-Villiger oxidation of chosen bicyclic ketones to corresponding lactones needed as chiral syntones for chemical/enzymatic synthesis of pharmaceuticals with similar structures (D-(+)-showdomycine, ribavirin and their analogues) active against infectious deseases. The biotechnological BVMO process will include implementation od immobilized whole cell biocatalysts E. coli.
