Biosynthesis and attachment of novel bacterial polyketide synthase starter units
Covering: up to early 2001
The biosynthesis and mode of attachment of a wide range of polyketide synthase (PKS) starter units in bacteria are covered in this review. Natural, unnatural, and engineered starter units associated with type I and type II PKSs are reported. The literature through early 2001 is reviewed, and 240 references cited.
