Oxidative degradation of testosterone by adaptive enzymes

Abstract

THE study of steroid synthesis by micro-organisms and certain oxidations and reductions of reactive groups at positions 3 and 17 of the steroid skeleton have been previously reported1. Turfitt2 has studied more extensive degradations of cholesterol by bacteria and has isolated products in which the side-chain has been removed and ring A opened. We should like to report the application of adaptive bacterial enzymes to the study of the oxidative degradation of steroid hormones.
