The present study reports the biotransformation of an anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) drostanolone heptanoate ( 1 ) by using two microbial cultures, Beauveria bassiana , and Macrophomina phaseolina . Fermentation of 1 with B. bassiana yielded five new transformed products 2–6 , while with M. phaseolina it afforded two new 7–8 , and two known 9–10 metabolites. The main sites of hydroxylation in the steroidal skeleton of 1 were at C-5, C-7, C-11, C-14, C-15, and C-20, hydrolysis of the ester moiety at C-17, and reduction of the carbonyl group at C-3. The structures of the transformed products were determined by using mass, NMR, and other spectroscopic techniques. This article is Open Access Please wait while we load your content...
