The biosynthesis of cytochalasans

Author affiliations


Covering: up to 2017

Cytochalasans are a class of natural products possessing a wide range of important biological activities, yet the full biosynthetic steps towards the formation of their characteristic chemical features remain unknown. This highlight provides an overview of the recent advances made in understanding the biosynthesis of this fascinating class of compounds, complementing and extending a previous comprehensive review of this topic (K. Scherlach, D. Boettger, N. Remme and C. Hertweck, Nat. Prod. Rep., 2010, 27, 869–886).
