Production of vanillic acid from vanillin by resting cells of Serratia marcescens

Appl Environ Microbiol. 1989 Jun;55(6):1660-2. doi: 10.1128/AEM.55.6.1660-1662.1989.

Abstract

Resting-cell suspensions of Serratia marcescens were able to convert, quantitatively, 0.3% vanillin to vanillic acid. The vanillic acid-producing activity reached a maximum after 28 h of incubation with 0.01% vanillin as an inducer.
