A Many-Colored Glass: Reflections on the Place of Life in the Universe

Freeman Dyson’s most modern ebook doesn't try and assemble all the celebrated physicist’s options on technology and expertise right into a unified conception. The emphasis is, as an alternative, at the myriad ways that the universe provides itself to us--and how, as observers and contributors in its tactics, we reply to it.

Example text

Gene deletion studies have identified two terpene synthases responsible for the production of α-acorenol and koraiol [113]. Although α-acorenol is derived from an initial 1,6-cyclization intermediate, koraiol synthesis likely proceeds through an initial 1,11-cyclization reaction to generate a humulyl cation (Fig. 3). Synthesis of the sesquiterpenoid alcohols longiborneol, koraiol, and α-acorenol by their respective fungal terpene synthases involves quenching of the final carbocation intermediate by water.

This may not be surprising considering that only a handful of homologs to known diterpene synthases (both monofunctional and bifunctional) can be found in currently available Basidiomycota genomes (Fig. 2). The scarcity of diterpene synthase homologs in our genome survey seems to be supported by the relatively small number of diterpenoid compounds characterized Biosynthesis of Terpenoid Natural Products in Fungi 41 from Basidiomycota [194] compared to the large number of sesquiterpenoid natural products isolated from these fungi.

Oryzae [207]. A second fungal labdane-diterpenoid pathway was identified in the fusiccocin producing fungus P. amygdali. Several GGPP synthase sequences were amplified; genome walking led to the identification of three diterpene synthase sequences, including the monofunctional fusicoccadiene synthase (PaFS) described above and two bifunctional CDP/KS synthase homologs, PaDC1 and PaDC2 [208]. PaDC1 and PaDC2 (in Fig. 7) are each located in gene clusters; however, although only the CDPsynthase domain is functional in PaDC2, PaDC1 converts GGDP into a novel diterpenoid phyllocladan-16α-ol (Fig.
