Fungal peroxygenases represent an exciting new enzyme class for stereo - selective hydroxylation reactions. They are capable of the oxyfunctionalisation of a large, diverse scope of substrates including alkanes and steroids as well as the heteroatoms sulfur and nitrogen. The outstanding activities and stabilities as well as their reliance on hydrogen peroxide as co-substrate renders it a highly interesting biocatalyst.
