Abstract

To characterize a new feather-degrading bacterium. The strain kr10 producing a high keratinolytic activity when cultured on native feather broth was identified as Microbacterium sp., based on phenotypical characteristics and 16S rDNA sequence. The bacterium presented optimum growth and ...read more

Oxygenation & Hydroxylation

Oxygenation is a chemical production that introduces oxygen atom into an organic compound. Hydroxylation is a chemical process that introduces a hydroxyl group (-OH) into an organic compound. In biochemistry, hydroxylation reactions are often facilitated by enzymes called hydroxylases. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes are expressed mainly in the liver and are active in mono-oxygenation and hydroxylation of various xenobiotics, including drugs and alcohols, as well as that of endogenous compounds such as steroids, bile acids, prostaglandins, leukotrienes and biogenic amines. Here is the latest research.
