13_15i/2012Inside Cover: The α-Ketoglutarate/FeII-Dependent Dioxygenase VldW Is Responsible for the Formation of Validamycin B (ChemBioChem 15/2012)

The inside cover picture shows the conversion of validamycin A to validamycin B catalyzed by the α-ketoglutarate/FeII-dependent dioxygenase VldW in Streptomyces hygroscopicus subsp. limoneus. Validamycin A is an important crop-protectant and the precursor of the antidiabetic drug voglibose. For further details see the paper by T. Mahmud et al. on p. 2209 ff.
