Welcome to Natural Product Reports Issue 9, 2012
NPR’s cover this month features artwork by Isabelle Andre et al. that illustrates their review article covering the main biological routes to sucrose derivatives or analogs that are prevalent in nature. The review also higlights the potential applications of sucrose derivatives in sugar bioconversion, in particular through the engineering of substrates, enzymes or microorganisms.
Sucrose analogs: an attractive (bio)source for glycodiversification
David Daudé, Magali Remaud-Siméon and Isabelle André
