Extraction and purification from the biomass of Corynebacterium ammoniagenes of 2-C-methyl-D-erythritol 2,4-cyclopyrophosphate (MEC) was associated with its spontaneous transformation into a number of derivatives (which was due to the pyrophosphate bond lability and the formation of complexes with metals). These derivatives included 1,2-cyclophospho-4… CONTINUE READING
