Protein–protein interactions in trans-AT polyketide synthases
Covering: up to 2018
The construction of polyketide natural products by type I modular polyketide synthases (PKSs) requires the coordinated action of several protein subunits to ensure biosynthetic fidelity. This is particularly the case for trans-AT PKSs, which in contrast to most cis-AT PKSs, contain split modules and employ several trans-acting catalytic domains. This article summarises recent advances in understanding the protein–protein interactions underpinning subunit assembly and intra-subunit communication in such systems and highlights potential avenues and approaches for future research.
