The Rv3378c gene product from Mycobacterium tuberculosis encodes a diterpene synthase to produce tuberculosinol (3), 13R-isotuberculosinol (4a), and 13S-isotuberculosinol (4b) from tuberculosinyl(More)
The Rv3377c and Rv3378c genes from Mycobacterium tuberculosis are specifically found in the virulent Mycobacterium species, but not in the avirulent species. The Rv3378c-encoded enzyme produced(More)
Now found in bacteria: An increasing number of genome sequences indicate that bacteria possess a variety of terpenoid cyclase genes. The characterization of two sesquiterpene cyclase (SC) genes found(More)
