Botrytis species as biocatalysts

Abstract

The search for new biocatalysts is increasing significantly in recent years, especially to obtain novel derivatives with improved properties for new drugs, agrochemicals or fragrances which are difficult to obtain using conventional methods. Fungi are traditionally the most frequently studied cell systems and from among the fungi used in biotransformations, Botrytis species stand out for being able to metabolize a wide variety of bioactive compounds. This review covers from the year 2000 up to December 2018 and reports on the application of Botrytis species as biocatalysts.
