Celling it: Natural products macrocyclic sesqui- (C15) and diterpenes (C20) have anticancer, antimicrobial, and insecticidal properties. To overcome the difficulties in synthesizing these complex structures, heterologous production in recombinant whole-cell biocatalysts is emerging. Metabolic, enzyme, and process engineering and systems biology have recently led to significant improvements towards economically viable processes. GGPPS=geranylgeranyl diphosphate.
