Light-driven whole cell biotransformation with recombinant cyanobacteria

Marc Nowaczyk, Robert Kourist

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Photosynthetic microorganisms have received considerable attention as production organisms for chemicals. An investigation of the photosynthetic NADPH supply for enantioselective biotransformations with recombinant cyanobacteria showed that the specific activity of the cells is comparable to heterotrophic organisms. Light-dispersion of the cells, however, limits the approach. A wide use as production organisms requires an improvement of several magnitudes.
