We reported the construction of a catalytically active self-sufficient fusion protein (CYP153AM. aq.-CPRBM3) for efficient electron coupling and optimal expression in E. coli. The established biocatalytic system was used for the production of selective ω-hydroxylation of dodecanoic acid in shaking flasks. In a two-phase bioreactor-system using dodecanoic acid methyl ester as substrate and the additionally expressed transporter (AlkL) 4 g/L ω-hydroxy dodecanoic acid could be produced with non-engineered E. coli resting cells.
