Technology offer : Biosynthesis of cinnamoyl amide derivatives of amino acids
IRD teams developed a bioprocess allowing the synthesis of N-cinnamoyl amids, from cinnamic-acid and amino-acids, thanks to a bacteria and its production of extracellular enzyme.
Cinnamoyl amids have been isolated from plants such as coffee or cocoa where they are present in low concentration. Litterature refers particularly to the antioxydant and antimicrobial activities of this molecule family. Chemical synthesis is possible but complex and costly as it needs four steps minimum, when the IRD technology allows to get the coumpounds in only one direct step.
