The pharmaceutical technique research group of University of Florence (UNIFI) developed different nanocarriers (microemulsions, solid dispersions and polymeric micelles) to enhance solubility, permeability and pharmaceutical properties of oleanolic acid (OA), a triterpene enriched extract (TTPs ext) and an oleuropein extract (OLE) (Figure 1). All these formulations were tested in terms of water solubility, storage

ARQUEBIO: Biotransformation of Oleanolic Acid by Absidia Cylindrospora

Por |2022-12-28T16:45:16+00:00diciembre 28th, 2022|Project activity|

In Arquebio, we’ve been testing different strains of fungi for their innate ability to produce valuable derivatives of oleanolic acid. Fungi possess a unique ability to generate hydroxylated derivatives of triterpene-related molecules, among other interesting interactions. Recently, we discovered that the fungi Absidia cylindrospora transforms oleanolic acid into a variety of unidentified compounds, some
