Biotransformation of cedrol by Curvularia lunata ATCC 12017
Date of Publication
Bioconversion of cedrol (1) with the Curvularia lunata was investigated in two different growth media. Five products were obtained in potato dextrose broth, whereas nine compounds were produced in a medium containing beef extract. Only three of the metabolites: 3b-hydroxycedrol (2), 3a-hydroxycedrol (3) and 12-hydroxycedrol (4) were common to both media. They were also obtained as the major products in each case. Three new derivatives have also been identified.....
