Abstract Biotransformation of ent-3beta,12alpha-dihydroxy-13-epi-manoyl oxide with Fusarium moniliforme gave the regioselective oxidation of the hydroxyl group at C-3 and the ent-7beta-hydroxylation. The action of Gliocladium roseum in the 3,12-diketoderivative originated monohydroxylations at C-1 and C-7, both by the ent-beta face, while Rhizopus nigricans produced hydroxylation at C-7 or C-18, epoxidation of the double bond, reduction of the keto group at C-3, and combined actions as biohydroxylation at C-2/epoxidation of the double bond and hydroxylation at C-7/reduction of the keto group at C-3. In the ent-3-hydroxy-12-keto epimers, G. roseum originated monohydroxylations at C-1 and C-7 and R. nigricans originated the oxidation at C-3 as a major transformation, epoxidation of double bond and hydroxylation at C-2. Finally, in the ent-3beta-hydroxy epimer R. nigricans also originated minor hydroxylations at C-1, C-6, C-7 and C-20 and F. moniliforme produced an hydroxylation at C-7 and a dihydroxylation at C-7/C-11.
