Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cortodoxone, also known as cortexolone or 11-deoxycortisol, is a steroid that can be oxygenated to cortisol (hydrocortisone). It was first synthesized by Tadeusz Reichstein.On April 5, 1952, biochemist Durey Peterson and microbiologist Herbert Murray at Upjohn published the first report of a breakthrough fermentation process for the microbial 11 -oxygenation of steroids (e.g. progesterone) in a single step by common molds of the order Mucorales. 11 -oxygenation of cortodoxone produces 11 -hydrocortisone, which can be chemically oxidized to cortisone, or converted by further chemical steps to cortisol.show more
