Abstract

A microorganism identified as Nocardia Sp.capable of converting azadirachtin 1 into three metabolites, viz. 3-deacetylazadirachtin 2, 1-detigloyl-3-deacetyl-azadirachtin-1-ene-3-one 3 and 1-detigloyl-3-deacetyl-11,19-deoxa-12,19-oxa-11-oxo-azadirachtin-1-ene-3-one 4, has been isolated. This is the first report on the functionalization of azadirachtin using biocatalysts wherein two novel, hitherto unknown metabolites have been isolated and characterized.
