In vitro polyketide biocatalysis : triketide building-blocks and enzymology
Harper, Andrew David
MetadataShow full item record
Polyketide products are useful compounds to research and industry but can be difficult to access due to their richness in stereogenic centers. Type I polyketide synthases offer unique engineering opportunities to access natural stereocontrol and resultant complex compounds. The development of a controlled in vitro platform based around type I polyketide synthases is described. It has been used to produce a small library of polyketide fragments on an unprecedented and synthetically-relevant scale and explore polyketide synthase enzymology.
