Enzymatic synthesis of butyl hydroxycinnamates and their inhibitory effects on LDL-oxidation

Vafiadi, Christina; Topakas, Evangelos; Alissandratos, Lee; Faulds, Craig B.; Christakopoulos, Paul


The potential of the Aspergillus niger type A feruloyl esterase (AnFaeA) for the synthesis of various phenolic acid esters was examined using a ternary-organic reaction system consisting of a mixture of n-hexane, 1- or 2-butanol and water. Reaction parameters including the type of methyl hydroxycinnamate, the composition of the reaction media, the temperature, and the substrate concentration were investigated to evaluate their effect on initial rate and conversion to butyl esters of sinapic...[Show more]
