Molecular probes for the evaluation of three isomerase enzyme mechanisms in secondary metabolism
(University of St Andrews, 2010) - Thesis,
This thesis is focused on an investigation of the mechanisms of three enzymatically mediated carbon skeleton isomerisation reactions. Chapter 1 provides an overview of some representative examples of the carbon skeleton ...
Identification and enzyme studies of rare amino acid biosynthesis from Streptomyces cattleya
(University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis,
This thesis is focussed on the biosynthesis of three toxins: fluoroacetate, 4-fluoro-L-theronine and β-ethynyl-L-serine which are biosynthesised by the soil bacteria Streptomyces cattleya. The two fluorinated metabolites ...
