From L-tyrosine to D-p-hydroxyphenylglycine?

Prof. Jing Wu and her coworkers at Jiangnan University recently developed a four-enzyme cascade pathway in vivo for the production of D-p-hydroxyphenylglycine (D-HPG), a valuable intermediate for β-lactam antibiotics and fine-chemical synthesis, starting from L-tyrosine. In this pathway, catalytic conversion of the intermediate 4-hydroxyphenylglyoxalate by meso-diaminopimelate dehydrogenase from Corynebacterium glutamicum (CgDAPDH) was identified as the rate-limiting step, followed by engineering of CgDAPDH to enhance its activity. ……

Aims and scope

Bioresources and Bioprocessing (BIOB) is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. BIOB aims at providing an international academic platform for exchanging views on and promoting research to support bioresource development, processing and utilization in a sustainable manner. As an application-oriented research journal, BIOB covers not only the application and management of bioresource technology but also the design and development of bioprocesses that will lead to new and sustainable production processes.

BIOB publishes original and review articles on most topics relating to bioresource and bioprocess engineering, including:

  • Biochemical and microbiological engineering
  • Biocatalysis and biotransformation
  • Biosynthesis and metabolic engineering
  • Bioprocess and biosystems engineering
  • Bioenergy and biorefinery
  • Cell culture and biomedical engineering
  • Food, agricultural and marine biotechnology
  • Bioseparation and biopurification engineering
  • Bioremediation and environmental biotechnology
