Table 2 conversion of several bicyclic ketones by crude cell extract and specific activities for pure 2,5-DKCMO

From: Recombinant expression and purification of the 2,5-diketocamphane 1,2-monooxygenase from the camphor metabolizing Pseudomonas putida strain NCIMB 10007

Substrate Conversion a [%] Specific activity b [mU/mg]
(+)-Camphor ((+)-1) 66 0.9
(-)-Camphor ((-)-1) 25 0.3
Norcamphor (13) 98 1.3
(±)-cis-bicyclo [3.2.0] hept-2-en-6-one (14) 100 1.4
(R,R)-bicyclo [2.2.1] heptane-2,5-dion (15) 94 0.06
  1. aConversion was determined by GC-MS analysis of biocatalysis samples with crude extract from E. coli cells overexpressing DKCMO at a substrate concentration of 1 mM after 23 h.
  2. bSpecific activity was calculated from conversion of substrate by pure enzyme determined by GC-MS at different points of time.
