Biochemical Investigations on Microbial Prenyltransferases in the Presence of DMAPP Analogues

Plants, bacteria and fungi provide a plethora of diverse structures derived from the primary as well as the secondary metabolism. Representative substances from secondary metabolite pathways are flavonoids, coumarins, xanthones and indole alkaloids. Although not necessary for the growth and reproduc...
