Isoprenoids are a large family of compounds with essential functions in all domains of life. Most eubacteria synthesize their isoprenoids using the methylerythritol 4-phosphate (MEP) pathway, whereas(More)
The methylerythritol 4-phosphate (MEP) pathway synthesizes the precursors of carotenoids and other isoprenoids in bacteria and plant plastids. Despite recent progress in the identification of(More)
The X-ray crystal structure of the 2C-methyl-D-erythritol 2,4-cyclodiphosphate synthase (MCS) from Arabidopsis thaliana has been solved at 2.3 A resolution in complex with a cytidine-5-monophosphate(More)
Most bacteria use the 2-C-methyl-D-erythritol 4-phosphate (MEP) pathway for the synthesis of their essential isoprenoid precursors. The absence of the MEP pathway in humans makes it a promising new(More)
Isoprenoids constitute a vast family of natural compounds performing diverse and essential functions in all domains of life. In most eubacteria, isoprenoids are synthesized through the(More)
