The Biosynthesis of Polyketides

Yuemao Shen, Fanyuan Gan, Liangcheng Du, Xiaojiang Hao

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


During recent ten years, the research on biosynthesis of natural products, particularly of polyketides has made staggering progress with the application of the methods and techniques transplanted from molecular biology into bioorganic chemistry. The biosynthetic pathways of natural polyketides were briefly reviewed in this article.
