The recently discovered non-mevalonate pathway of isoprenoid
biosynthesis serves as the unique source of terpenoids in numerous pathogenic eubacteria and in apicoplast-type protozoa, most notably Plasmodium, but is absent in mammalian cells.
The team of Berkeley scientists won $10,000 plus opportunities for mentorship for their method of metabolically engineering yeast with vastly improved capacity for isoprenoid
Ten xanthones with one or two isoprenoid
groups and a prenylated benzophenone isolated from roots of Cudrania cochinchinensis (Moraceae) were tested for their antimicrobial activities against vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE).
Pyrrole Pigments, Isoprenoid
Compounds and Phenolic Plant Constituents.
Globulixanthones A and B, two new cytotoxic xanthones with isoprenoid
groups from the root bark of Symphonia globulifera.
Tatman D, Mo H (2002) Volatile isoprenoid
constituents of fruits, vegetables and herbs cumulatively suppress the proliferation of murine B 16 melanoma and human HL-60 leukemia.
A hypothesis regarding endosymbiotic actinidic archaea as having evolved from an early isoprenoid
organisms by abiogenesis is presented in this paper.
This points to cholesterol as the primal prebiotic molecule and evolution of actinidic archaea and viroids from a primitive isoprenoid
The first grant is in Europe and focused on furthering the company's current artificial intelligence (AI) and Informatics platform at Amyris and the second grant is from National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the development of a novel isoprenoid
Mevalonate is the precursor not only of cholesterol but also of many non-steroidal- isoprenoid
CoQ10 or ubiquinone is a lipid-soluble benzoquinone with a side-chain of 10 isoprenoid
units endogenously synthesized from phenylalanine and mevalonic acid.
The major isoprenoid
alkanes in the analysed samples are pristane (Pr) and phytane (Ph) (Fig.
