New Insights on Cyclization Specificity of Fungal Type III Polyketide Synthase, PKSIIINc in Neurospora crassa
TLDR
Investigations identify residue positions governing cyclization programming in PKSIIINc protein and provide insights on how subtle variations in protein cores dictate product profiles in type III PKS family.
Structure and function of the chalcone synthase superfamily of plant type III polyketide synthases.
Covering: 2002 to 2009 This review covers recent advances in structure and function studies on the chalcone synthase (CHS) superfamily of plant type III polyketide synthases (PKSs), which catalyze
Novel Type III Polyketide Synthases Biosynthesize Methylated Polyketides in Mycobacterium marinum
TLDR
Structural-based homology modeling, product docking, and mutational studies identified residues that could facilitate the distinctive catalysis of these proteins that belong to a unique pks genomic cluster conserved exclusively in pathogenic mycobacteria.
Identification and Characterization of a New Type III Polyketide Synthase from a Marine Yeast, Naganishia uzbekistanensis
TLDR
It was demonstrated by LC-ESI-MS/MS that these two recombinant PKSIII proteins could only produce tri- and tetraketide pyrones and alkylresorcinols using only long fatty acid chain from C8 to C16 acyl-CoAs as starter units, in presence of malonyl-CoA.
Evolutionary Histories of Type III Polyketide Synthases in Fungi
TLDR
P phylogenetic and reconciliation analyses of 522 type III PKSs from 1,193 fungal genomes revealed complex evolutionary histories with massive gene duplications and losses, explaining their discontinuous distribution in the fungal tree of life.
Exploiting the Biosynthetic Potential of Type III Polyketide Synthases
TLDR
This review summarizes the insights gained from research on type III P KSs, from the discovery of chalcone synthase in plants to novel PKSs in bacteria and fungi, highlighting the utility of PKS's in the development of natural product libraries for therapeutic development.
Structural Basis for Cyclization Specificity of Two Azotobacter Type III Polyketide Synthases
TLDR
It is postulate that the polyketomethylene intermediate can be folded to a suitable form for aldol condensation only in such a relatively narrow cavity of ArsC G284W (and presumably ArsB), the first reported structure of a microbial resorcinol synthase.
Type III Polyketide Synthases: Current State and Perspectives
TLDR
In this chapter, the occurrence and distribution of type III PKSs, the genetic architecture of the genes involved in type III polyketide biosynthesis, the protein structure of types II and III P KSs, and the commercial importance of type II and 3PKSs are discussed in detail.

A novel tunnel in mycobacterial type III polyketide synthase reveals the structural basis for generating diverse metabolites
TLDR
The crystal structure of PKS18 reveals a 20 Å substrate binding tunnel, hitherto unidentified in this superfamily of enzymes, which underlines a fascinating example of the way in which subtle changes in protein architecture can generate metabolite diversity in nature.
A New Family of Type III Polyketide Synthases in Mycobacterium tuberculosis*
TLDR
It is proposed that these proteins might have evolved by fusing the catalytic machinery of CHS and β-ketoacyl synthases, the two evolutionarily related members with conserved thiolase fold, to provide a fascinating example of metabolite divergence in CHS-like proteins.
Crystal Structure of a Bacterial Type III Polyketide Synthase and Enzymatic Control of Reactive Polyketide Intermediates*
TLDR
The crystal structure of Streptomyces coelicolor THNS reveals an unanticipated novel cavity extending into the “floor” of the traditional active site cavity, providing the first plausible structural and mechanistic explanation for yet another unusual THNS catalytic activity: its previously inexplicable extra polyketide extension step when primed with a long acyl starter.
The chalcone synthase superfamily of type III polyketide synthases.
TLDR
A major focus of this review is the integration of information from genetic and biochemical studies with the unique insights gained from protein X-ray crystallography and homology modeling, which generated a number of new predictions regarding both the importance and mechanistic role of various amino acid substitutions observed among functionally diverse type III PKS enzymes.
Macrotetrolide biosynthesis: a novel type II polyketide synthase.
TLDR
Genetic analysis of the macrotetrolide biosynthesis unveiled an unprecedented organization for a polyketide gene cluster that features five genes encoding discrete ketoacyl synthase (KS) and four genes encode discrete ketoreductase (KR) but lacking an acyl carrier protein (ACP).
Pentaketide Resorcylic Acid Synthesis by Type III Polyketide Synthase from Neurospora crassa*
TLDR
ORAS is the first type III PKS that synthesizes pentaketide resorcylic acids, and aldol condensation and aromatization of the intermediate, which is still attached to the enzyme, are presumably followed by hydrolysis for release of the product as a resorCylic acid.
Versatility of polyketide synthases in generating metabolic diversity.
Versatile polyketide enzymatic machinery for the biosynthesis of complex mycobacterial lipids.
TLDR
The focus of the Highlight is to emphasize the functional role of polyketide synthase (PKS) proteins in the biosynthesis of complex mycobacterial lipids and the catalytic as well as mechanistic versatility of PKS.
Structure of chalcone synthase and the molecular basis of plant polyketide biosynthesis
TLDR
The three-dimensional structure of CHS elucidates the chemical basis of plant polyketide biosynthesis and provides a framework for engineering CHS-like enzymes to produce new products.
