Abstract

Fungal and bacterial oxidation of steroid hydrocarbons has been examined. A rapid assay method for detection of metabolites derived from 5α-[4-C]cholestane is described. Out of 87 organisms tested, 16 gave isolable oxidation products, while others degraded the hydrocarbon without producing stable intermediates. Preliminary characterization of these compounds is based on chromatographic properties.
