Crystal structure of curcuminoid synthase CUS from Oryza sativa
TLDR
CUS is the first example of a type III PKS that disobeys the traditional model of head-to-tail polyketide assembly, and a switchover of the role of a diketide intermediate from a growing chain to an extender unit enables CUS a unique head- tohead polyketides assembly. Expand
