- ... Whole-cell biotransformation is one of the promising alternative approaches to microbial fermentation for producing high-value chemicals. Baeyer–Villiger monooxygenase (BVMO)-based Escherichia coli biocatalysts have been engineered to produce industrially relevant C9 chemicals, such as n-nonanoic acid and 9-hydroxynonanoic acid, from a renewable long-chain fatty acid. The key enzyme in the biotran ...
