Neue Biokatalysatoren zur Herstellung langkettiger Dicarbonsäuren
Dicarboxylic acids (DCA) are versatile chemical intermediates of industrial importance, e. g., for polymer production. The majority of industrial DCA are produced by chemical conversion. However, the chemical synthesis of long-chain unsaturated DCA is still challenging. An alternative is the biotechnological production with genetically modified yeasts. We explore the flavogenic yeast Candida guilliermondii as novel biocatalyst for DCA bioproduction.
