Methylerythritol cyclodiphosphate (MEcPP) in deoxyxylulose phosphate pathway: synthesis from an epoxide and mechanisms

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this communication, we reported another unique IspG-catalyzed transformation, the production of its substrate, MEcPP, from (2R,3R)-4-hydroxy-3-methyl-2,3-epoxybutanyl diphosphate (Epoxy-HMBPP) when reductants are excluded from the reaction mixture.
