Characterization of PksD and PksG in Bacillus subtilis 2006 745 Polyketides are a diverse class of natural products that have a wide variety of pharmacological applications. Polyketides are biosynthesized by modular polyketide synthases in a very similar fashion to that of fatty acids. The distinct features of ea...
Characterization of PksS in Bacillus subtilis 2007 995 "Cytochrome P450s are a common type of the polyketide tailoring enzymes that are responsible for the hydroxylation of polyketides. PksS, a likely tailoring enzyme, is found within the gene cluster pksX, from Bacillus subtilis. The gene cluster was fo...
