Inside Cover: AuaA, a Membrane-Bound Farnesyltransferase from Stigmatella aurantiaca, Catalyzes the Prenylation of 2-Methyl-4-hydroxyquinoline in the Biosynthesis of Aurachins (ChemBioChem 11/2011)
The inside cover picture shows that AuaA, a membrane-bound farnesyltransferase from Stigmatella aurantiaca, is responsible for the formation of aurachin D. This enzyme was successfully overproduced in E. coli and characterized biochemically. A number of C3-prenylated 4-hydroxyquinoline derivatives were produced by using cell extracts from the recombinant E. coli cells. For more details, see the paper by S.-M. Li et al. on p. 1724 ff.
