M2 EQUITYBITES-December 7, 2015-Evolva announces launch of valencene
The firm modifies the enzyme called cytochrome p450 and adds it to orange compound valencene
to produce the grapefruit extract.
An enzyme called cytochrome p450 will be added to orange compound valencene
to produce the elusive grapefruit flavour extract.
Another success story has been the discovery of a number of bacteria and fungi that are capable of catalyzing the double oxidation of valencene
, which occurs naturally in oranges, to produce the grapefruit flavour nootkatone.
Oxford University spin-out company Oxford Biotrans came up with the technique of using valencene
from oranges, while Biocatalysts developed the enzyme that causes the reaction.
