Title: CONVERSION OF METHYLGLYOXAL INTO HYDROXYACETONE USING NOVEL ENZYMES AND APPLICATIONS THEREOF
Abstract:
The present invention relates to new methylglyoxal reductase (MGR) enzymes which are useful for efficiently converting methylglyoxal into hydroxyacetone. The invention more particularly relates to a method for efficiently converting methylglyoxal into hydroxyacetone using said enzymes, to a method for producing 1,2-propanediol using a microorganism overexpressing said enzymes, and to said microorganism.
