From a set of lipases, only that from hog pancreas demonstrated promiscuity, catalyzing the reaction in the presence of imidazole as a promoter. Another enzyme, acylase from Aspergillus melleus (EC 126.96.36.199) also proved to be active in the synthesis of E-chalcone under the same reaction conditions. This acylase along with the recombinant D-aminoacylase (EC 188.8.131.52) also catalyzed the reaction between acetophenone and p-nitrobenzaldehyde. Such a "green" approach to the synthesis of chalcones is of great interest because of the important applications of chalcones as formula ingredients in the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic industries.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11420/3043||ISSN:||1820-7421||Institute:||Technische Biokatalyse V-6||Type:||(wissenschaftlicher) Artikel|
