Computational studies on the cyclization of squalene to the steroids and hopenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A review of computational studies of the related biosyntheses of steroids and hopenes reported during the last two decades is presented. Computations in the gas phase and those that include the enzyme are covered. Based on the numerical results conclusions have been drawn about the biosynthetic mechansims of these all important biological reactions.
