This paper reports the identification of a barley UDP-glucosyltransferase, HvUGT14077, which is able to convert the estrogenic Fusarium mycotoxin zearalenone into a near-equimolar mixture of the known masked mycotoxin zearalenone-14-O-Î²-glucoside and a new glucose conjugate, zearalenone-16-O-Î²-glucoside. Biocatalytical production using engineered yeast expressing the HvUGT14077 gene allowed stru ...
