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 ...
In vitro studies of the enzymes involved in fluorometabolite biosynthesis in Streptomyces cattleya
(University of St Andrews, 2009-06-26) - Thesis,
Enzymatic fluorination of natural products is extremely rare. Of the 4000 halogenated natural products identified, only 13 possess a fluorine atom. The C-F bond forming enzyme from the soil bacterium, Streptomyces cattleya, ...
