Biotransformation of monofluorophenols by cultured cells of Eucalyptus perriniana
On the biotransformation of phenol and monofluorophenols by the cultured cells of <i>Eucalyptus perriniana</i>, phenyl and fluorophenyl β-<small>D</small>-glucosides were isolated after a 1-h incubation. Especially, the yield of 2-fluorophenol is higher than those of the other substrates, i.e., phenol, 3- and 4-fluorophenols. These results indicated that <i>E. perriniana</i> cells selectively glycosylate the hydroxyl group of 2-fluorophenol discriminating phenol, 3-and 4-fluorophenols.
