Probing Diversity-Generating Metabolic Pathways
Unlike conventional metabolic pathways that lead to a single product, diversity-generating pathways produce many compounds. Understanding such diversity-generating pathways could help researchers develop combinatorial biosynthetic pathways. A team of researchers led by Baldomero M. Olivera and Eric W. Schmidt of the University of Utah shows how one such pathway from cyanobacteria differs significantly from conventional metabolic pathways. The researchers focused on the tru pathway, which synthesizes a diverse family . . .
